Lighting large night/day exteriors (1 reply and 1 comment)
Hello Team Deakins,
My name is Marcelo I’m 14 and have enjoyed your work for many years. I want to be a cinematographer when I’m older. Your podcast has been incredibly interesting to during these tough times. I myself am working on my own short films and often struggle when lighting large exteriors in a realistic way that still supports the story. I found your lighting style in No Country For Old Men outstanding. I was wandering what your approach is to lighting large exteriors both during the day and in night scenes where you must work around practical lights. I would also love to know what your approach is to choosing lenses for a project. Do you chose them based on the story your trying to tell? I would really appreciate if you answered my questions.
Good to know there are 14 year olds out there already in love with cinematography.
I just wanted to inform you that there is a podcast episode on lens choice, its episode 7.
Good luck with the rest,
Just found it. Thank you!
