Cinematic Lighting: 5 Lighting Setups in 1 Room with Intellytech LiteCloth


Here’s a look at five lighting setups in the very same room. Cinematic lighting. Hi, this is JP Morgan today on the slanted lens we’re going to light five different cinematic Lighting’s in this very same room We’re gonna make yourself work in this small space We’re gonna do five different setups from really bright and open to really dark and dreary. So JP Morgan and Eileen safe JP Morgan Chase JP Morgan Chase So, how do you find Aileen you can find me on instagram at eileen chase. There you go eileen chase So check that out. And here we go five different lighting setups in this tight room Let’s get started so we can do for our first setup here. We’re going to create window light in this room You can see from the c 200 in the corner that we have some light in the window if I open this up exposure wise Enough to be able to create window light in this room. It just blooms that Window and the curtain and it looks terrible. So we’re gonna set up a light inside and create a window light We’ve got two and teletext that’s an LED 160. It’s called a white cloth. This is a two by two so two foot by 2 foot panel velcro all across the back so it hooks into the brackets in this case comes with it also a Very low-profile softbox, which I absolutely love because it makes it easy to get it into tight places It’s got a scrim for the softbox. It’s got a great Egg-crate grid for the softbox and then of course, you’ve got your controller. Also, you have B mount or Golden mount batteries you can run these things on battery as well And because they’re LEDs, they’re gonna run for a long time on battery. We’re gonna put these together into a frame Give us a big broad source light cloth and Intel attack Their goal is that you have a small footprint to travel with but you can make big sources big lights on set We’re gonna set this up as two two by two light panels one sixty. So the first one will be our window light So we’re gonna turn that on That just gives our window light coming in that gives us a sense of the light from the window Now the second we’re gonna turn on to just open the shadows up just a little bit on the front grants a foreground So we’ve dialed that one down a little bit. It becomes our broad source. That’s gonna open the shadows. So turn on that second light What’s nice about putting this together? Like this is that you have the ability to control each side independently I can make the source for the window much brighter I can make the fill brighter or softer gives me control of both those areas independent of each other But they motivate from the same place. Our last light is an LC 120. So what this is is a 1 by 3 So you’ve got those great 1 by 1 flat LED panels. We’ve got three of them in a row here We’ve got a grid on it so it’ll keep it really nice and Focused on her and give us a light from behind got just slightly behind her So it’s gonna give us a nice rim behind her and give a little more interest to the scene. So let’s turn that one on So there’s our first lighting set a little window light with a nice rim from behind for our next setup We’re gonna go to a little more practical and moody look in the same daylight scene so still a daylight scene but the first thing we’re gonna do is we’re going to get Get rid of the 70 watt bulb in this we’re gonna put a 200 watt bulb and then wrap a little diffusion around it Reason to wrap the diffusion around it is because these 200 watt bulbs are not frosted So you get a too much of a hard-line? So the diffusion was gonna give us a nice soft light in the room and I usually carry a case of these I have an skb case full of light bulbs so I can change those out in the Practicals so we’ve added that light give us just a little bit of warmth in the room This is gonna be a lot more moody. We’ll add the 1 by 3 light cloth cloth here. The 1 by 3 is gonna still give us that nice room light behind her So it just gives us a nice moody scene. Nice light on her face nice warmth in the background with the practical light practicals Give you depth and make make for a very interesting frame to help to have a colour depth and also light depth last thing We’re gonna do is we’re gonna add one of the two by twos just on the side as to open up our shadows So that’s two lights of a practical and a much different look than the bright sunny day. We did in the first one The next setup we’re gonna do is day 4 night We’ve set our camera at 3200 degrees and we put 4 stops of nd on it The reason we’re doing 4 stops of ND is because we’ve got to crush the windows and make them look dark enough to be believable That it’s night outside. We’re getting blue light coming through the windows. So we crushed the light in the room down for stops So we can get those windows in the right place now We’re going to take and start adding some of our lifes to kind of imitate blue or moonlight The first one we’ve got a 1 by 3 light cloth and it’s at 5,600 degrees So it’s going to be blue in the camera Then we’re going to add a light on the side here with a grid in it That’s going to give us a this a two by two light cloth two by two From the side with the grid that’s again at 5,600 degrees. So it’s going to be very blue So we have a nice blue pool all around her on the bed like it’s coming from the two windows in the background We’re now going out of practical in the back We actually went to a 300 watt bulb because we have so much ND on here We crushed the light in this room We needed as much light out of that as we possibly can that Practical is nice because it just gives us a little bit of depth. We took the diffusion off from it. So we have more intensity gives us some adapt in the room and just a little bit of interest last light we’re going to add is not at 5,600 degrees but at 3200 degrees so it matches the color balance on our camera So we turn on this a 2 by 2 light cloth Turn that on with a softbox on it that now becomes our key light on our face. It should be a natural color It should match the color on the camera all the light cloth products by Intelli tech are fabulous because there are three thousand to ten thousand degree color range by colors You can change them whatever color you need to and they’re a CRI of 95 plus which gives us a really good Solid color rating so we can set that key light at 3200 degrees Give a nice clean light on her face and that gives us our day for night. There’s our third setup It’s bright in this room, but it doesn’t look bright in the camera Lighting stood up number four. We’ve velcro to our light to the ceiling literally We’ve velcro to a two by two light cloth to the ceiling just peel off and put the velcro on the back of it So you’ve got the sticky side up and then you just push that on to the ceiling and it’s gonna stick there just fine It’s a great way to mount these lights because it sets a low profile Softbox and it’s the ability to get it straight onto the ceiling means that it gets it up and out of your way It’s a great way to work You’ve got this long cable here Which we’ve got the extension on which gives us plenty of cable to get back to the control box and the controls And allows us to control our light from overhead and just be able use it in a very tight space These lights are fabulous for working in tight spaces. They really are so we’ve taken the four stops of nd off the camera now We’re gonna F like four, which means we’re not wide open We’re down a stop but our powers on all these lights are really low We’re down at like 18% on the key light and now we’re gonna add our 1% to the side here Through this unbleached muslin and it’s just it’s just a nice kind of Warmth on the on her face from the side and just gives us a little bit of openness on her face warms things up last thing we’re gonna do we’re gonna add back our Practical and we’ve changed out the bulb no more 300-watt bulb. We’re back to like a 70 watt bulb But now we’re on a dimmer we’ve given it way down So it’s not quite as bright in Order to get the controller we have right now We put do Bateen on each one of the windows and that just blocks all of the light that’s coming into the room from outside Letting the curtains just go dark. It’s nighttime. Just letting them fall off the dark to black. We’ve got that overhead light It’s just really low profile, which is what’s so nice about these are just easy to work in tight spaces Because they’re so small And so and I have such a small profile our last set up is a little more stylized a little more interesting So we’re gonna start with just the lamp in the background I’ve got my cameras at 3200 degrees and then we’re gonna turn on a 2 by 2. It’s just on the floor back there It’s gonna bounce up into the ceiling and it gives us a nice silhouette of her as she’s on the phone right there It just looks great with Aileen on the phone in the foreground now I’ll add just a little of the muslin on the front and that’s gonna give us a little bit alive in her face This is nice. It looks you couldn’t get away with this. We can make the muzzle a little brighter The muslin is on the 1 by 3 in the front, but I think we’ve gotta push this over the top a little bit We’re gonna add a red gel here on the side. So Julian’s gonna turn the red gel on for us And now that has a much different look it has you know, just a it’s a music video It’s a just a little more stylized Look at her Leia sitting on the bed talking on the phone there so light that has a gel on it We took the 2 by 2 Fold it in half put the gels on the front of it and then just held that backed it up to the 2 by 4 Frame, so we got a black background to kill all the white light on the other side You can really pull these down to a single one by one and use them that way as well So that look that worked very well Emerald is hollywooding that that gives us our final light So there’s our kind of a little more edgy fun and there’s our fifth set up here in the same room I think the phone just rang must be for you. I think so What you’re having trouble estimating your next job? Well, you should get the download from JPMorgan go to the sling luscom We’ve got a great down. Let’s go to teach you how to estimate your next job funny you call that’s such a moment So there you have it five lighting setups in the same room Using those lights where tell attackers made this very easy because they’re so low profile They’re easy to tape on the wall and get into tight places Just very easy to work we’re folding them into singles and doubles triples this when it’s worked really well the color as well be able to dial that up and Down just made it really simple to work in here from very simple bright kind of looking window light to a little more aggressive Red light as we finished up the day, so you have a good time a great time. Excellent So, I wonder if someone’s calling me on the phone Hello, it’s your future Colleen. Oh, it’s my future in the future We’re gonna do more cinematic lighting lessons just like this so stand by look forward to that Subscribe here to sign lynnster you won’t miss it. One of them cinema lighting crazy lighting Real lighting real lighting and really gonna be a lot of lighting stuff going on in the future So keep those cameras rollin keep on clickin the future it is bright. Oh, There’s a lot of luminosity in the future. That wasn’t very funny wasn’t

  1. Hi Jay P! What type of aperture and shutter speed can you expect from the light cloth's? I currently use the Ikan's and could use a tad more light.

  2. with most LED panels being rectangular and not having an option to easily a touch of softbox what recommendations do you have for softening the light of an LED panel

  3. Lots of good info in this video!
    Kicking on that light, @ 4:15, did a great job of concealing how dirty the bottoms of her feet were. 😉
    That ring tone was spot on from what I grew up with, but our phone was black. I don't think the tech for coloring plastic had been figured out yet.

  4. Thanks for having me model for this video!

    If y’all watching are interested, you can follow me on my YouTube account or on Instagram @eileen.chase 😄 I act and sing and stuff! 😝

  5. great video! great lighting!! can to a video in the future on how to shoot still images with the same lighting? im sure the camera settings are a slow shutter speed? or high iso? or both? in continuous light that is..

  6. hi. how did you determine what aperture you was going to do? was it by what your key light read when metering?

  7. thanks for your response. ill be using continuous lighting on a film analog camera. im thinking of controling light starting with setting my given aperture by my key light and then working on the ratio i want for my fill lights, back light etc.

    this is why i asked my question

  8. Which SKB case is he using for his bulbs? Surprisingly hard to find small pelicans with dividers and not foam

  9. Great tutorial… but more valuable, to most of the viewers of the video, would be how to achieve the same results without $6,000+ worth of lighting equipment.

  10. There's something about LEDs that just looks cheap and crappy – makes any face look greasy. Not a fan – and yes I've tried the "best" With Kinos that would have looked SO much better.

  11. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.
      knowing your channel now. and I'm learning a lot here from Brazil

  12. amazing tutorial , is hard to find tutorials like this <3 …. is there any other channel that i should be aware of ? i mean with well explained tutorials like this

  13. Very nice tutorial, thanks for posting. Just wondering did you shoot 8bit or raw and what iso? I'm a C200 shooter as well

  14. We know you have the latest and greatest lighting equipment but most of us don't. Please make the same video with lights most people have, would be a bigger help, thanks.

  15. This is one of the best lighting videos that explains practicality of how to use the lights I have ever seen. Thank you so much!

  16. You have no idea how informative this video is. You practically summarized some good lighting books in a flash. This is the best video I have seen in a while on lighting. Thank you so much. Keep doing more.

  17. Thanks for showing the actual light levels in the room verses the in camera light levels. This is a detail tutorials often neglect to show. I often look at a room and think it's too bright but as you've shown the actual light levels to the eye are much greater than the in camera light levels.

  18. Lovely, I was watching the video and thinking "oh that's nice but everything will change when I click that B&H link…" But when I did, I'm actually surprised at the pricing of this kits. Looks like a good alternative to Aladdin's! (I love aladdin's but they are so damn expensive)
