I'm relatively new to working on my own projects and it's been quite awhile since I've shot a short film, as I've mainly edited up until this point.
I'm shooting a short film this weekend and I'm trying to achieve a very specific lighting look. I'm trying to bring out a more of yellow, somewhat sickly look without over lighting my actors. And the space is small and I have a very limited budget, so I've been using work lights up until this point.
This is the room:
We're removing all the photos from the wall behind the desk and chair, a well as removing most of the stuff from the lower book shelf.
We're placing a yellow practical light on that lower book case for some of the yellow-ing effect.
I was thinking about using to overhead soft box lights coupled with lighting outside the window.
I'm just a bit stumped on how to really work with this space and whatnot.
What my goal is something similar to this style of lighting with a bit more age and yellow:
I've been trying to draw up lighting diagrams by looking over his work and considering some of the tests we've ran in the room.
Thanks for any help!
