Lighting change for different frames (3 replies and 1 comment)
Master deakins, Do you find yourself changing the angle of your lighting according to different frames when covering a single scene
Yes, I will sometimes change the light angle if I feel it beneficial for a shot even though it may be out of continuity. In fact, I did just that for a shot last night.
Thank you master deakins 🙂
How much of the change of the light angle would you be OK with？
Would you ever flip the side of the key light for any reason?
Any angle that I think is possible without the audience being aware of it. I also flip the key light if I think it necessary to do so. This I do pretty rarely as I feel it can take the audience out of the 'reality' of a scene more than a small angle change.
