Out of the blue i have my first proper Scarlet-X (Canon mount) shoot tomorrow where I will be in a a workshop shooting the welding of a frame to be used for an upcoming big event in the UK.
I'm going to have a 60D in the corner shooting a long timelapse of the whole day, probably on a Tokina 11-16mm, and then I'll have the Scarlet there for shooting video.
Won't be able to light it and also really won't have any time to test before the events I am capturing start off so I was looking for thoughts on how people have dealt with those shoots in the past. Will have a 25mm and 50mm Zeiss ZF, plus a slow (f3.5) 35-105mm Nikon AI manual zoom.
some 4k @ 25fps general working on the frame
some 3k @ 48fps closer on the welding and sparks
some 2k @ 60fps on the sparks hitting the floor etc
Does anyone have experience of this sort of stuff? Would you expose purely for the sparks and let that illuminate anything else? Or would you expose for the people working on it and let the sparks be even hotter .
Any tips, advice or examples would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance :)
