Is it to make the light bloom on the sides as well? It looks like on the maxibrutes on the porch, you only put gels in the front...

    Thanks,

    We smoked up the area so there would be white light mixed into the orange if hadn't covered everything with gel. But I could have just gone ungelled and dimmed everything for warmth and used a higher Kelvin setting on the camera too.

    Sorry, I haven't ever looked into buying a slider so can't advise on which one to get. I think you need a 36" slider though (and strong sticks), 20" is a pretty small push-in considering that the head takes up some of that length.

    Hello David

    I'm looking to do a very specific emulation of a shot from Bergman's Persona (1966). I've linked to an imgur site with the reference and a floorplan: https://imgur.com/a/BxgAiCI

    We're shooting a day exterior in a forrest, what me and the director really like about the still from Persona is how her face is still just barely visible and not a total silhouette.

    My Plan is to encircle them with negative fill to bring out the contrast difference between them and the background, and then bounce accordingly, beneath them. I am a little worried how to get a proper bounce on the front subjects forehead as it seems to me that, a bounceboard from that angle would be covered by the actors and the negative fill and not really be able to bounce a whole lot. Also i'm a bit worried about the lack of catch light, as I think the director will want that and i'm not sure a bounceboard will give that.

    Do you think my approach makes sense, or do you have anything to add before a pre light? Especially in regards to the catch light, I wonder if one could do this with only natural light.

    Best regards

    Your plan sounds good -- I think surrounding them with negative fill (and you'll need some overhead negative fill) will be enough, the background ambience will wrap around them. Yes, a bounce card to one side can add a little side light if needed. The contrast of your viewing LUT will also be a factor in how fast the shadows fall off. I don't see why a catchlight would be needed in a day exterior shot.

    Hi David,

    My wife and I started binging a couple of episodes a night of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisles series recently. Really love the richly colored almost surreal look of it. Beautifully done. How did you achieve that look?

    Thanks!

    There's nothing unusual or heavily-manipulated in terms of color-correction -- the look is mostly in design, costume, and lighting. Some light diffusion (mostly #1/4 Hollywood Black Magic filters on Panavision Primo lenses).
