Jessie James death bed Prop. (1 reply and 6 comments)
I am intrigued by your choice of lighting in this scene but I am also intrigued by the ‘prop’ that Brad is laying on. Was this purpose made for the film or is it a vintage operation theatre contraption. It seems to have a handle perhaps for changing the levels but the heavy wooden top has got me flummoxed, looks more like a butchers table! I cannot remember this scene but I assume he was on show to have his photo taken hence a camera on a tripod hidden by the onlookers.
The prop was made. The shot was a reproduction of an existing image of Jesse James.
Thankyou Roger. Now that is interesting.
Basically it's death scene. So only you have worked with strong black. No one can't see the wall depth.
I was referring to the Wheeled cart he is laying on. As Roger said, it’s a reproduction copied from an original 1880’s photo. Yes, I do understand what you mean by the black background. Thankyou for your interest.
Oh sorry mike actually that was all questions! But it became comment answer. I was double minded. Once I have asked roger why did you use soft box instead of your favourite ring lights.he said i want something directional light. So I wanted to ask that kind of directionality of light and pretty black baground for convey sad feeling or something else different roger intuitive!
Don’t apologise to me, Vanniyan, it was great to converse with you.
