Jerri Dunn Floor Lamp September 24th, 2018 - 03:00:55
I have to set up and tear down every time which takes time. So I was looking for a way to do that quicker, but with the equally good results, and so I started looking around my living room in my house to see what I could possibly use. It was already there so would have to take all this time. Setting up and that's what I just notice the floor, lamps that we have, I have two of them they're. Basically, the same thing are these long standing lamps that have these skinny necks? They end in a socket with a bowl shaped white diffuse around them, and if you put them in the right position, they actually look pretty good.
Their lights just have to know how to control them and where to put them and notice. This is my key light over here, fills in this side or lights up the side of my face, and then my fill light is about four feet away this one's about two feet away. This is about four feet away same wattage, 100, 100 watts same exact, lamp they're about six feet off the ground. It works pretty well now, one light you don't see. Also that's acting as a fill.
Is this light right above the camera? This is the ceiling fan light. My camera is directly underneath a turn that off you can kind of see what happens there. You'll definitely lose a lot of fill and one more light. In the background. Is this light? That's over my kitchen sink and if I stand in front of it notice the light kind of streams out of my head a little and separates me from the background I'll go back here and turn it off.
So you can kind of get an idea. What it looks like without the back light no notice, it's just a gaping black hole that I'm standing in front of and because of my dark hair, I sort of kind of disappear right into that black hole. So why don't we turn that back on there we go. So all this is is a simple tip about practical lighting. Look around you see what's available and you kind of understand what to do with those lights, like I've sort of described as basically three-point lighting that have already done an episode on you can take advantage of those things know the best thing about all.
This is that this setup takes me about five minutes. That's a big difference from thirty to forty minutes and the results are pretty much the same. Yes, the back light, the separation on my shoulders and head isn't as nice as a literal three-point setting where I got a back light shining right on my back at the back of my head. But this 3-point lighting works pretty good with the fill and a ceiling fan in these two lights, it's not too bad. Now.
This is also the same exact setup that I actually would use now on my kitchen counter. When I want to build things, you see that set up on the one dollar budget and also any time I'm actually putting things together on a counterpart. You see that setup and all I did was I. I move the two floor, lamps and basically flanked my kitchen counter with them and again that takes about five minutes to setup, and I use this gray card here which I've used in my perfect exposure episode. I showed ahead how to use a great car to set the exposure properly for all these setups and I've got a really fast alternative to my previous 30 to 40 minutes setup now granted.
