    So a local production company gave me their BMPCC4K to shot this live session for a friend of a friend.
    His project is called "a friend of mine" which makes this hilarious.

    Any how. This was live and I was doing all the lighting and camera work on my own, so we only shot two angles. Which are these:

    Stills für Social_1.25.1.POST.jpg
    I got it on short notice and did not have time to test before so I set them both to ISO400 and used the BMPCC for the close up, cause I knew how to work with it.

    I tried cropping on the wide, but learned that you really need a clean clean image for that. Anyhow!
    I like the menus a lot on the B4K, but for pure the pure bang for buck ratio winner, if you have time to light your shots: og pocket. For 250 to 300 used with accessories this is a killer deal.
    I shoot so much multi cam music sessions, I think I am gonna get another pocket...


    Oh and... I have a hard time lighting wide shots. Still early in my lighting career. But the artist is happy!

    Sieht doch für deine Beleuchtungs-Kenntnisse schon gut aus

    I really like this look. We have to see it in motion though, to really get an impression on the lighting and grading.
    The first image seems to have more of a cyan-look, whereas the second one is more blue.

    Will you upload the finished Clip here once it´s done?

    I experienced the same challenges early on too.
    Best advice I received many years ago was:
    Light your setting first. Just the setting. So that you get it looking appealing first. You do of course have to make allowances for where your subject/talent will be located once they are on set. THEN light your subject/talent.
    You will almost always have to make a few adjustments at this point, but more often than not, this is a very effective approach.

    Thanks! Yes that sounds right.
    I need Work better with my resources. I lit this with a 6x6 soft light but didn't have the right tools to control the source. Just duvetyne on the left. Next time I need an eggcrate to control the source. Or don't use such a big source...

    Well that looks very fine. I'm sure the artist is quite pleased.

    Thanks Dane. That means a lot! :-) Yes they are pleased (shot two different artists in the same location and they split up my rate between them)
    But I really want a team next time. This one man show type of stuff is nothing I want to pursue any further. Just too nerve wrecking haha

    I really like the look. The colors and the partially softer image.
    Can you post some ungraded stills, to get an impression of the location without the color adjustments?
