This past week we got commissioned to do a spot for the Perth Fashion Festival. The festival is a ways away but we went out to the latest event to put together a little 30 second promo for the festival organizers.
It turned out to be a great opportunity to try out the Scarlet in very bad lighting conditions.
Behind the scenes there was almost 0 light. Just one or two super dim overheads. We weren't going for the harsh on board look so we were just stretching the ISO as high as possible.
Even the show was a tough environment as off center was almost black. I cranked up the grade to see how it would handle. It all came back no problem.
Looking at the footage I am very impressed with the Scarlet's performance. I couldn't imagine shooting any commercial work in situations with lower light than this.
All shot with the C/Y 35mm f1.4 wide open except the last shot which was the 25mm.
The clip is all finished, just waiting for the go ahead and then I'll post it here.
For now the stills will have to do:
