03. Lighting & making a small set

In this chapter Karl and the team build a set to shoot against as an alternative to just shooting on a blank paper background. Find out how to create stunning sets and how to use mixed lighting to create a cinematic atmosphere with small pockets of light whilst maintaining a balanced image by adding each light in to the image separately.

NOTE: This photography class is available with English subtitles.

  1. Fantastic video thanks, cant believe I’ve missed this one with about a year of being a member.

    My question is;
    For the set build would one get away with 3mm hardboard using 8×4 sheets? So it would effectively be a posh V flat

    In my studio ive previously been using 18mm mdf which means building a scant frame which is costly, time consuming and sometimes have to pay a joiner.

    thanks

    1. Hi Peter, not quite sure what you mean here? All the lighting was described in the video, was there something I missed?

  2. These are some of my favorite types of photoshoots; almost like still life film making. Was the coldish blue effect done in post production, or were there gels introduced (or maybe a simple color temperature change)?
