Sloped underwater landscapes require you to orient your lighting to the angle of the slope, so that you don't light up the surrounding "junk" but rather your intended subject.
- [Instructor] Alright, so we've…seen how the terrain underwater…can be more or less horizontal,…the way it is topside on dry land.…We've seen how you can hover in…space next to a vertical wall,…and so in this movie,…we're going to split the difference by taking a look at slopes.…And along the way, we're going to see how…you light along a diagonal surface.…And so here we have a simplified version of a reef,…and the great thing about reefs,…is that they often occur between…shallow and deep areas in the ocean,…and as a result, they tend to slope.…
- [Instructor] So let's take a look at what happens…when we're trying to shoot on a slope.…So, here we've got what would be a good…set up for a landscape type image.…And what you can see is we're sort of…running into the same problem we had on the wall,…where we think we're in the right spot,…but we're not because that right hand strobe,…well it's going to be lighting up junk on the slope this time.…So not the wall, but the upper part of the slope…because the strobe is just too low now.…
