Have you ever needed to shoot in a pretty tight space like a hallway for a production like a commercial that will be used for television and for the web? What are some essential techniques and pieces of gear that you will need? In this movie, author Richard Harrington walks you through how to light a hallway so that lighting is consistent through each shoot day and matches with the other shots.
- So we're getting ready to shoot here in the hallway,…which is a pretty tight space,…and we need to maintain visual continuity…over two days of shooting.…We actually shot some scenes in the bedroom today,…and then we get our child actor tomorrow,…so we need to make sure…that we actually maintain consistency in lighting…from over two days,…plus when we step from inside the room…out into the hall.…So, this is going to require taking a look…at some of the playback, and making sure…that we're checking one shot from each scene,…and just checking that we're maintaining…consistent color temperature as well as…overall ambient lighting levels.…
The hallway presented a lot of challenges…because it was so tiny.…It was critical that we remove variables.…To do this, we placed a series of marks on the floor…so the actors precisely knew where to stand…as they went from location to location.…We didn't have a lot of room,…so the lights had to be very focused.…As such, the actors definitely needed to hit their marks.…Now, we also created a reaction shot.…
