An example from a recent shoot of the beauty of a hazer / fogger for creating a nice mood for a morning interior feel. Although thin, it is nice to shoot through a diffusion and backlight reads nicely. Flares in the lens were provided from the Gaffer’s flashlight, just out of frame. An 18K with ¼ CTS was used to backlight the scene while two 6K HMI pars were pounding through a trace-papered window off to camera right to provide a key, this was wrapped with a vistabeam inside off to camera right, and another off to camera left provided some light fill and wrap.
The HMI’s (as previously addressed) were powered with Powergems 300HZ ballasts, making it possible to achieve light levels substantial for hi-speed shooting, while not having to melt the set with Tungsten fixtures.
