Video: About the lighting: Setup three

Okay, guess the light time. what do you think? How many people, how many people say grid spot? Grid spot, everybody? Well, sort of right and sort of wrong. if you can pull back a little bit what you'll see is my face is not in a grid spot of light, but it's really in the convergence of two lights coming from top and bottom. So, it's, sort of, a mixture of third degree. Eh, third degree light. That you know, light coming from really hard right over the top. Where were you on the night of the murder kind of stuff and clam shell light. But it's clam shell light that's even turned away from me just a little bit.

About the lighting: Setup three

Okay, guess the light time. what do you think? How many people, how many people say grid spot? Grid spot, everybody? Well, sort of right and sort of wrong. if you can pull back a little bit what you'll see is my face is not in a grid spot of light, but it's really in the convergence of two lights coming from top and bottom. So, it's, sort of, a mixture of third degree. Eh, third degree light. That you know, light coming from really hard right over the top. Where were you on the night of the murder kind of stuff and clam shell light. But it's clam shell light that's even turned away from me just a little bit.

Because I want to have the, I want to have the edges of that light to work against. Now, actually, Ed, can you come in a little bit? and bring it back into the original, original crop? You want to see how, how tight the angles matter. I'm going to move my face in closer and watch out quickly the slight changes. It's going to get brighter but I'll take that back down in a minute. So let's take it down. Just completely different light. Now, I'm going to move back out of the beam again and brighten it back up. And you've got light that sort of, converges on my face from the top and the bottom.

We've also changed up the background light. Where it was pointing exactly at the background before, now what we've got. You can see that it's just like. Well, let me move my hand back here. It's aiming right up. So it's splashing light up. And it's just creating that little, that little shape on my shoulders. I'm losing myself down here and I don't worry about that at all. so I'm really having to push my camera guy on this. I'm going to fez up here for a second. You know, he's the, he's the corporate photographer. He, he's got his bag of tricks. He's very good.

But we try to take into account the lighting-geek factor in, in within the audience of the people watching this, so we're going to be doing some types of video lighting that might not see everyday, but, that's, that's kind of who we are, and we want to have fun with it and, and, and by the time we finish this, we will have done some strange things I hope.
