Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Tips on working with natural light, part of Corporate and Documentary Video Lighting.
- The sunlight changes so quickly, that by the time you fix one thing, something else breaks. So, having a clear understanding of what is absolutely necessary and where you can compromise makes a big difference. Try to keep an eye on tiny, but important details, like unwanted reflections on your talent's sunglasses, or trash cans in the background. The key to shooting in situations like this, is to work fast, but also smart by taking advantage of the resources that the location offers, like an open field with direct sunlight and a big tree.
Each chapter begins with a strategy session, and includes tips for capitalizing on natural light, repositioning the camera, and getting the final shot. Eduardo closes the course with a wrap-up of the shoots and some final thoughts on shooting video for corporate clients.
