    Congrats. Well deserved. Among the many things I appreciate about your work:

    1) Your facility at integrating moving camera shots with static frames so fluidly that even steadicam moves don't call attention to themselves - unless desired.

    2) You keep the contrast characteristic, color palette and lighting geography of your coverage spot on with the master/reverse.

    3) Your lighting techniques manage to establish depth in the frame and, at the same time, give your talent the right look and feel to support their performance. All too often I see masters with good dimensional cues cut with singles that "float" in space. Your skill at maintaining spacial relationships with your coverage is one of those subtle things that contributes to the deeper engagement of the viewer.

    Cheers - #19

    Hi David,

    I recently saw the film Knowing (2009) shot by Simon Duggan and noticed several closeups appear to have a key light with mixed hard and soft sources, often times a soft wrapping key to the darker side of face along with an overlapping harder light on the brighter side. I've always assumed you try to keep your key light as 'clean' as possible to avoid double shadows from mixed sources, especially in closeups. I'm assuming Mr. Duggan does this to add shape/definition? Any thoughts on this, and any suggestions for lighting interesting looking closeups?

    Thanks!
    Good eye! I didn't notice that. That looks awesome, I want to mess with that myself now!

    David, if I could piggyback on Brandon's question, holy crap how did Simon Duggan get Warcraft to look so amazing?!? The whole thing is like a fantasy art painting come to life. I know there's a lot of CG, but surely a lot of it must also be the lighting?

    I don't know the situation, there was probably a practical source in the room mixing with his soft key light. In real life, people often have more than one light hitting their face.

  9. #5869 out of the water 
    hi david,

    if a camera needs to be able to come out of water to then continue into a shot on land (and thus the camera needs to be in an underwater housing), is there anyway to deal with water remnants still wetting the area in front of the lens? will the image continue to look slightly blurred/soft from the wetness still remaining? or is there a way to deal with this?

    thanks
