Noir meets reality

Lighting (Roz Dean)

SONY DSC

I did a few trials of different lighting styles to give me an idea of how to light the restaurant scene. Here I’m just using one light placed at the side of the subject from a height. It’s low key lighting that creates a strong contrast and long shadows. This is a Arri 300 light, with the spot and the barn doors almost completely closed over.

My decision on location will be whether to just use the traditional one key light, or have another one bouncing off a reflector to shed more light on the restaurant.
