I figured I should share some pictures from our rehearsal. It was really useful, and I personally learned a lot about lighting. Bouncing lights of the white walls worked quite well: it diffused the light so we avoided hard lighting and ugly shadows. Because of the blue filters we maintained the colour temperature and avoided the look of a studio.
We also got to play around with the frame and different angles, which would have been very time consuming if we were to do it on the actual shoot.
Over the shoulder shot, lounge. Imagine that the table is really made of glass…
Take two big spoons of the glucose syrup and put it in a plastic container. Make sure you don’t spill on clothes: it is quite hard to wash off. Add half a bottle of food colouring and mix until you have a even liquid. You want it to be quite thick, but still have the dripping consistency as blood would. If you want it darker, add chocolate topping.
Looks pretty good huh?
