"Probably 80% of what we do is ' Talking Heads '. Below are a few samples of lighting techniques to create a great image."
Here I wanted to use the windows behind. I kept the lighting soft and motivated.
Because it was a slightly overcast day I did not need to treat the windows.
Robillard Hearing Center commercial. I try not to use the office lighting at all
I love my Rifa's they are a beautiful soft light. I used my leko to create fake window light.
On-camera with the US Ambassador and his wife. Not a lot of time to set up.
By just showing a hint of the window I can add fake daylight with my Leko.
A great way to do an outdoor interview with full sun is to use a silk overhead.
The silk really softens the light and then I just add a little kicker with a refector.
Another outdoor interview using an overhead silk and a reflector to bounce in daylight.
This was shot in Tanzania, Africa. I used two LED's one as key and the other as back.
I love windows and natural daylight. I try to make sure the lighting is motivated.
If the day is overcast I can get away with no window gels and see detail outside.
Here I blow out the windows which gives the scene a nice bright, airy feel. Strong key.
Using my LED 350 suction cupped to the windshield I can keep a constant light level.
Motivated lighting. Real window on left, fake window light on right. Strong kicker.
