A little test we shot yesterday evening which developed in about two hours or a bit less.
Watch it first and then read on if you want.
The setup was quite easy… the knocking part was shot on the side and Thorsten just knocked on a table and its lit with one litepanel. As we get to the part were I am sitting at the table we table we had one litepanel high up on a c-stand facing down on camera right. more of a rim light. and another litepanel on my left side through a trig rip diffusor to bring a little detail to my face. and for the third part we basically clam shelled Thorsten and then me with the two litepanels. though the one on the left was i front of him and the one on the right behind him functioning as a rim light again.
All was shot with my Nikon D3s and a Nikkor 85mm 1.4 lens at I think f5.6 and ISO 200. All on a big Manfrotto Monopod and I think it worked great. And all was edited in Final Cut Pro X.
So much for this quick thing. let us know what you think.
