Bring the light

WEB-Spectrol-SNC-Lavalin-NL_GSL-5500

Its no secret that location shooting has its lighting challenges. To dark, too bright, too contrasty, not contrasty enough, wrong colour, mixed colour, back light….  That’s why we usually bring our own and lots of it. But every once and awhile you have everything set up and balanced and realise you need just one more light to make it sing …and the bag is empty. That’s what happened to us on this shoot in a dark cavernous machine shop. We were out of lights and we needed something to fill in the background. Thats when I spotted the welder on a break. I asked if he could help out and light up his welding torch to make some light. He asked how much? I said give me everything you got and he smiled.

Sometimes “available light” means any light that’s available.
