Get Lit: Super Easy 3-Point Lighting

No need to complicate this one… I needed to isolate a conductor against a black backdrop. It’s a commercial so it needs to look clean, but it needs a little more of a kick to sell stage presence. A piece of duvatyne, a chinaball, and two Ikan 312 LED lights was all we needed. The only concern was separating the conductor’s navy blue blazer from the black backdrop, but that separation was easily achieved with a strong kicker. Check out the finished spot here… pw: tab
