How To Replicate Early Morning Interior Light: Into The Badlands

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  16 Minutes of Instructional Video, In-Depth Written Breakdown, Behind-the-Scene Stills, and Equipment Breakdown List and Top Down Lighting Schematics-SUPPLIED W/ENGLISH SUBTITLES 

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  As a cinematographer, you are asked to do many things. One of them will be to make two different locations feel like the same one. This requires consistent lighting in a controlled environment. For this sequence, Shane had to keep an early morning look consistent throughout a four day shoot for a fight sequence.

In this lesson Shane Hurlbut, ASC will guide you through how he creates that early morning light look and what differentiates it from a similar twilight feel. You will learn how to balance your image for the early morning look by setting your shadows at just the right level, introducing different tonality into your image, and lighting with layers. Finally, Shane will take you through his diffusion of hard light for a beautiful closeup on a face.

<<<Elisha R>>> Outstanding. I love this. This is what I like about the Inner Circle. This is my definition of behind the scenes rather than the actor and directors accolades they give each other on the EXTRA sections on the Bluray/DVD products of the major movies.(forgive me for being cynical.) lol Thanks again Shane on inspiring future cinematographers/photographers.
<<<Kurt L>>> Great stuff. A lot of great practical ideas. Thank you!

<<<Alex L>>> Thank you! for another great lighting Lesson. The scene looks amazing
<<<Paul V>>> I love this. This is so amazing. So many good pointers here. I always wondered about the technique of going from a wide with an 18K to a CU and what to do with the light (bring in another light and soften it or just soften the 18K). I’ve never used an 18K. It’s great that you went over that info here. I have this obsession with lighting day interiors because I love streaks of light. LOL  You rock, Shane! This is incredible!
