Would like to know how you achieve the looks
Explanation of the shots will be very useful to us.
Extremely Sorry sir I couldn't attach screen shots through my mobile ..some problem.i will do it through other system.
I believe he used hexagonal type ring lights used with diffusion. You can get plenty of answer about serious man lighting
You can get all answers in this forum. Do search
Office...hall and bus ...if you explain the lighting will be great full sir
Sir am also reading your old posts also...it's like a gold mine of the technical and ideas for me.. I am very happy that I read and found your forum...
Thanks to you and your wife for making this happen.. definitely it's going to improve my skills and knowledge in film making...thank you
And have to thank all members who gives thier input s and especially to
mr . David Mullen ...who used to give explicit tech details and explanation...
Love to continue this forum...
Thank you very much ..for a guy like me from India who learned and felt better and confident by participating in your efforts to educate and share your knowledge...thank you sir.
The Office was a location on the second floor I seem to remember. I used 12' x 12' white reflectors to augment the natural daylight here. I remember the daylight changed dramatically over the course of the day. In the morning we had to cut some direct sunlight and by the afternoon there was little natural light reaching into the room.
The scenes on the bus were, I think, just shot under natural light. I may have had a bounce source inside but I don't think so.
The Synagogue was lit using a large 'soft' light which we made from 4 concentric hexagonal shapes each of which carried regular household bulbs spaced at something like 7". The largest spanned over 12' and the smallest about 4'. There was no diffusion and the softness of the light was simply created by the use of so many individual bulb sources. I know there has already been some more detailed information discussed on this set up.
Yes roger.. already discussed you same topic.
Thank you very much sir...
The hexagon light that referred here is that similar to the attachment picture?
I think it's your rig picture sir..
Roger did you make the rig material in aluminium or somewhat light weight.
Yes, that is the rig. It was purpose made in aluminium. The sockets were the heaviest part.
Thank you sir..
Regarding the hexagon shape any reasons for that shape instead of circular one..the reason am asking sir in sky fall you arranged the dino lamps in triangle shape ...the reason to mimic the fire shape....that's why am asking sir....
And also the the depth distance between each ring differes decending order from the small cluster of bulbs ...reason sir...
The hexagonal shape was far cheaper to construct and also easier to store as it can be collapsed into a series of straight bars. The reason for the spacing was to create a brighter and whiter 'core' to the overall softness of the light. To help this the outer bulbs were dimmed down a little more than those in the center.
Thank you sir ...
In one of you discussions in " array of light in true grit night effect you mentioned that u soften the edges of light leaving the centre lights as it is..
Is that same principle or feel applied here sir ..
Plz be patient with me...
My question is
Sir the old lighting system
Chandelier is also the same as Ur rig sir..if its right i wonder understanding the science of spreading the light is mind-blowing sir
Thank you very much sir for showing us the path to find ours
Attaching two pictures sir.
Not roger. Everything is relative to size and distance.
