I am filming in the banquet hall at The Convent - the historic Governor of Gibraltar's residence.....I will be filming as part of the Gibraltar crystal piece I have bored people with for a while now hahahaha
They are setting up their formal dinner set up for me to shoot the crystalware in situ so to speak….
The light levels in the attached image are NOT what I will find to work with on the day…..I am shooting on July 2 and the arc movement of the sun takes it directly over the building once it appears over the Rock of Gibraltar……
…….this means my ambient base light comes in at f1.4 and f2 in the table area with the meter set at 250asa......light coming in off the windows is at f4 to f5.6 max
My plan is to take in my Arri 650plus tungsten and Arri L7-C with Rosco diffusion sheets to either simulate the sun coming in off the windows and hitting the table or if framing tighter to create some atmospheric lighting….
So either i go with this stock or play it safe and use 500T as have used for the rest of the filming
