Low muslin bounce (5 replies and 5 comments)
I am watching your revolutionary road making pictures. Here by i have attached two pictures. Mostly you used put the array of lights in below level. Exterior large bounced window source also low bounces. But some of the shots you mixed up high level bounce also. Please explain
Is there any theory involved you had put the 800 watt joker bug in below level.is that only muslin cloth or something support ed material back of the cloths.
If I had to take a guess, first one because of low ceilings. Second one the lights are acting as a fill so it's positioned lower to fill in shadows near eyes and to add some catchlights.
Thanks cameronrade. Expecting comments from roger. How did he feel
My thoughts is some people told me light the human face from low level it's kind of monster lighting method even the light is soft and another thing lot's of below level of bounce lights roger done with particularly in "revolutionary road" film. Even some exterior large window bounce also. That's what I asked
The placement of the lamps was not dictating the angle of the bounced light. That was more a consequence of the tight location we were working in. Simply, you put a light where you can.
What about this large bounce source shots in "revolutionary road". I feel there is enough space where ever you wish to put the lights. But this shot also bounce board above and lights below the level. Is there any reason?
You want a light to fill the bounce as much as possible so this means hitting it at 90º. If the bounce is at an angle, so as to get the maximum coverage from inside the room, it makes sense to have the light on the ground.
Great explanation roger. Thank you
Thanks Roger! So considering the unbleached muslin is at the same place, putting the lights above lever or on the floor wont change the result on Leo´s face?
I mean the shadows on his face.. or even the amount of spill on the roof above his head etc ..
