How to Light Night Exteriors with Blue Tones: Pt 2

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  8 Minutes of Video, In-Depth Written Breakdown, Topdown Lighting Diagram    –Supplied w/English Subtitles

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  This is part two of the Light Night Exteriors series. The sun is setting, and we are going to start lighting before we run out of daylight. You want to set things up in priority order, the most important being first. The first thing you want to set when you’re doing night exteriors is not your key light; it’s your backlight because the backlight is what our moon source is and it really develops that mood we are talking about, which is that key on key scenario. The backlight will be on the same side as the bounce ambient fill light, which will be our moody key light.  This lesson we set all the positions of the lights for our night work.  Why do I set the back light and the fill light on the same side, why do I use smoke, what do I use as an ambient moonlight source?  This is Lighting Night Exteriors with DIY lights on a BUDGET.
