Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with mixed light, part of Video for Photographers: 2 Filmmaking on Location.
- So here's an interesting approach to lighting…on location, especially when you have a small crew…and you are doing interviews.…Yesterday we had the opportunity to shoot…an interview with Doug,…and it was extremely bright outside.…We decided to go inside in the cellar…so we could harness a lot of different things.…We could show the art gallery,…we could show the cellar,…we could show the tasting room,…and his interview explaining all the steps…in the wine making process.…
For that, because we were inside,…we didn't have enough available light,…not enough sunlight.…There were only a few windows…in the back of the room.…So it was pretty much artificially lit completely.…Here is a different approach.…We have a lot of light outside,…and normally you'd think that to use…sunlight you're shooting outside.…Yes, that's generally true.…But today we're actually shooting inside.…We opened this huge gate…that they use for the forklift…to get all the cases and barrels in and out.…
Then we have this beautiful bounced light.…We're actually bouncing sunlight…
