How to light against daylight or a bright window

DedoWeigertFilm

shows us how to light a subject against a bright background or window:

Lighting against hard daylight can be a challenge for those filming on location. You need the right equipment to make it work.

In this video piece, using 2 lights: a dedolight DLED4 and a Felloni LED bicolour, we show how to turn a silhouette into a well-lit subject

Using Sony S-Log, to extend the dynamic range, and an Atomos Samurai Blade for ProRes (HQ) recording, the level of quality is lifted to produce a high quality result.

Furthermore, by using Coremelt’s plugin – SliceX – we able to create a mask around the subject and then darken the background area.

These techniques can make a big difference to improving the quality and impact of your images.
