Fun demo with my LMU students
So you want to shoot movie posters.....
Here's a great demo I did at Cherry Soda Studios with my Loyola Marymount University Students, for my Commercial Lighting Class.
The assignment was for the students to come up with an imaginary Film or TV show and create a Movie Poster plus individual cast photos. For the demo I decided on a western theme. So Cow-Girl-Up and lets see how we created our lighting design using 4 Intefit S1 strobes and a single red gel.

Here's what we got
For the individual cast photos we kept the same lighting for consistency.
A longer f-stop was used for the group photos so we had more DOF to insure everyone was in focus. The front Key-lights where set at equal power at 5.6 (about half-power for other units). Our gelled light was at 8.0 and the grid at 9.0 because it took more power to push through the grid. (Note, the S1's go to 10.0 which would equal full-power on other units)
Camera: Canon 5D Mark VI
Lens: Canon 17-35L and the 70-200 for individual photos
Lights: 4 Interfit S1 mono-lites
Front Key light: 2 foldable soft-boxs
Back Rim light: Interfit S1 can plus 30 degree grid
Side red gelled light, Interfit barn doors with red gel.
The students, cast, and I had a great time.
Because after a long day of photography, who doesn't need a good stiff drink.
