We are getting nowhere with this pop video we're trying to make.
We cant seem to get the lighting right & our filming looks dull & not at all sharp.
]The lighting we have is 3 fluorescent arrays on tripods bravely made by my dad: 1 x 500W used as key
1 X 400w used as fill (1 bulb removed so 300W)
1 x 400w with barndoors used as backlight
We have 2 X1000w halogen worklights to illuminate the green screen background but when these are turned on the camcorder (Canon HV30 all settings on automatic) dulls the foreground even more.
Lastly, my dad has a fairly ordinary looking Olympus digital camera (C-310).
Should we expect our camcorder footage to compete with stills from that, because it doesnt come anywhere near it.
We would be so grateful for advice.
