We finally got the chance to test out the ‘book light’ lighting set up on a recent shoot at Williams F1 in Oxfordshire. It’s awesome.
Bouncing a 2.5k HMI off a poly and then through frost creates a beautifully subtle and soft key light, then using a Kino for the fill and Fresnel for hair. We’re super happy how it turned out.
Also, Frank Williams might be the nicest man alive.
