I知 new to the forum and I joined especially to ask this question.
I値l be filming a simple music video shortly and I want to setup a shot that looks just like the Ice Cube music video
At about 1:23 you see the black and white shot of Ice Cube with black background and a simple light behind his head in the distance. (this shot re-appears all throughout the clip)
I know I壇 need a strong light (800W redhead) at the back but there are a few other things I need to know like:
- Other than going into a completely black room or drawing black curtains behind the subject is there any way to have the background pitch black like in the video either in production or post production?
- What type of key lighting (to light the front of the subject) would I need?
