PORTRAIT

USE THE LIGHT

Use the moment of light

Some sceneries are dull. Others are pleasant. Some are dramatic and a gift from heaven. Literally. Situations to take advantage of.

On an assignment I was working on for TV2Fyn I also had to do a few portraits. The case story is about fruit growers having difficulties selling their products and getting paid well enough.

I did shoot a few portraits in the start but had to ask Flemming to come back two or three times more because the light changed and got better and better. More and more dramatic. Fitting the story perfectly well. Sometimes you just have to be persistent.

I did send the pictures to Flemming afterwards as a thank you for the help and patience. 

In the scenery, I lit up the subject with a Nanlite tube and enhanced it further in post-production. The same light I used for the Live shooting.

PORTRÆT

BRUG LYSET

Brug lyset

Nogle locations og scener er kedleige. Andre er bare fine. Og så er der dem som pludseligt giver dramatik og og, helt bogstaveligt, er en gave fra himlen. Som man skal udnytte.

På denne opgave for TV2Fyn skulle jeg tage nogle portrætter af en frugtavler, der har problemer med at få penge nok for sine varer.

Jeg tog nogle skud tidligt i forløbet, men da skyerne og himlen hele tidenforandrede sig, bad jeg ham om at stille op igen et par gange. Fordi det hekle tiden ændrede sig til det bedre, og bakkede historien op med de tunge dramatiske skyer.

Jeg sendte Flemming billederne bagefter som tak for tålmodigheden.

Jeg belyste både tv-live delen med Nanlite tubes, og portrætterne. Lyset er løftet lidt ekstra i post produktion da lyset ikke var stærkt nok.
