Getting the right light

Postby Gary Puckett » Wed, Mar 11 2009, 8:18AM

Guys,

Need some advise on setting the right light. I know Kerry's says that" Less is More" but there has to be a system in placing the lights. I think all the light fixtures show the same light beam, as for as eCab. goes. This project is driving me :wall: I try a light arrangement and that doesn't work so I try another, and another, Frustration sets in and I close it down and walk away

Gary,

I have found that using the dome light gives off a very dispersed light. And the high hat light seems to give a more focused light.

I have difficulty with is sometimes as well. Don't give up though!! :wink:

Gary,

Send me the job file and I will light it. If you like the lighting you will then be able to see how it was done.
Save your original file in case you don't like the way I do it.

Could I take you up on that I've had trouble making the lighting look right on most projects. My advantage is even a so so lighting is better than what others are presenting.
