Have you ever needed to light a master bedroom to make it look like it is nighttime 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 master bedroom for a nighttime scene for a commercial or narrative production.
- So we've moved up to the bedroom…and we're getting set for the next scene.…We want this to feel like it's late at night,…so what we're doing is we're mixing the lighting styles.…We have a series of practical lights that we're using,…we've swapped out the lights overhead,…we're trying to make it feel a little bit warmer,…but at the same time we're gonna be…color balancing the camera so it feels a bit cool.…So we're finding this mixture of…practical lights with the lights that we're adding,…and we're really taking advantage…of the full-frame DSLR sensor,…so we can open it up and get a lot of light into the camera.…We want to really minimize the use…of artificial lighting in this scene.…
In order to create a transition,…and show passage of time, we jump the couple forward…and have them change to get ready for bed.…After sitting around late into the night watching TV,…they still can't fall asleep.…Now we weren't able to use all of these scenes,…for some of the versions of the commercial,…but seeing the mundane activities of getting ready for bed…
