That's a pretty amazing setup you've got there. I can only imagine the prep that goes into doing this underwater. (I've done similarly complex lighting in various locations topside.)
Your trim's looking a little off, though. ;-) I jest, but how many ankle weights did you need to keep your feet planted on the bottom?

Pool shoot BtS

Postby ljjames » Mon Apr 10, 2017 7:18 pm

When I'm not trying to improve my #360video or wanking around with creative lighting or being a masochist trying to shoot macro, periodically I get to do some cool pool shoots for local film productions...

Here is a screen grab from BtS... Yes, we even had an art department that made us some shrubbery :) Projects like this are a team effort and I'm super lucky to have found a stellar underwater grip (he's topside grip as well) and periodically another primary DP/Camera op to team up with. It's taken several years of laying the groundwork and gear investment (lights, cameras, surface monitors, communications gear, underwater black backdrop, etc. etc..) to put our little underwater production company together, and slowly building our name/reputation, but when things like this come together, it's totally worth it. This ended up being a 12 hour day, and for those who are curious and want to know more I'll be doing a bit of a write up :) I don't know when the film will be coming out, but its name is "Light me Up" by local filmmaker Miri Stone :)
