One of the uncomfortable consequences of the subjects I usually film is that they have a better handle on basic math than I do. Not that I suck, but often my thinking-through process is slower than theirs. One can see that internal gears are at work. I noticed a very well controlled twinge of impatience in one instance when I was mentally working out the angle for a light. In other words, I need to practice a lot before I go out in the field.
Today I’m gearing up for some VIP interviews in the fall, literally. I haven’t been satisfied my lighting system so I bought a new reflector.
And spent the evening testing it on my trusty models, Nichi and Nanna.
I want to be able to capture a richness of colour in people’s personal environments.
Light and cameras are all about getting the triangle just right.
