1. Working with Windows
4. @ 2:00 The camera can see the color differences
5. @ 4:10 Sodium vapor lights are very yellow/orange - not full spectrum lighting
@ 6:40 Setting the exposure first for your window (the constant) and then lighting your subject to match that exposure.
6. @ 5:20 Lighting with a view outside the window
8. @ 6:50 HMIs (daylight balanced sources) are used indoors to balance the lighting with the exterior daylight
9. @ 8:05 Color correction gels
10. @ 8:10 CTB - Color Temperature Blue corrects tungsten light toward daylight
@ 9:35 Kino Flo color temperature bulbs - different Kelvin temperatures of 2900k, 3200k and 5500k
@ 10:20 Shooting at dawn or dusk is one of your best options if you don't have powerful daylight balanced lights.
13. ARRI M-18 1,800 watt HMI
@ 14:45 Lighting to match the midday sun is a challenge.
@ 16:10 Neutral Density (ND) gels can reduce the brightness of smaller windows when working indoors.
@ 19:25 Even shop lights with color correction bulbs can be useful.
@ 22:05 Using the windows as a light source.
@ 17:00 Using HMIs from outside the windows to "bring the sun in".
@ 23:00 Blown out windows can be beautiful when thrown out of focus.
@ 25:30 Huge, public interiors with windows are often impossible to light properly.
@ 27:00 Working with tungsten lighting at dusk and dawn can produce beatiful results. These images were shot at dawn.
