Take your footage beyond the predictable tight-medium-wide composition of shots and become inspired by light around you. Ray Roman (Ray Roman Films) shares some stunning compositions in this short clip from his In[Focus]2012 presentation. These video images were created in settings that most people would immediately label as “less than optimal” lighting…and he created some stunning results.
Cinematography doesn’t have to be limited in moments of harsh lighting or low lighting–if you use light to your advantage. Ray shares that, “It can create drama if you start to use your imagination…push the envelope and go beyond the basics.” We hope the gorgeous images he shares in this video help you to be inspired by light!
