OWUSS Rolex Scholarship Lighting Workshop


No Comments

Last month I had the pleasure to run a lighting workshop for The OWUSS North American Rolex Scholar Yann HF with his mentor Jon KierenKIEREN Technical through Underworld Tulum.
In the video I aim to walk you through the preparation of creating a scene in an aesthetic way. Yann worked hard thinking about light placement whilst dealing with the buoyancy changes involved with picking up and placing lights. The video then transitions into Jon and Yann working as a dive team as they would in a real shoot while the camera is rolling. They have to think about positioning, choosing the correct path to run a line through the set up and using face lights. I think we can all agree they did an excellent job at light placement and modeling, the cavern looks stunning. Best of luck Yann and very happy to have introduced you to my area of work!
