Lighting from Black
My first shoot against black in the 16OZ Studios.
The studio's emphasis on Movement... of grip, of lighting, of everything...paid off in the ease with which we could move. Move the camera, move the lights and move between set ups and looks.
And it is possibly lighting from black that you need the ability to move most.
Here the nuance in lens perspective or the movement of light- axis takes you fairly rapidly from nothing to Noir.
The Truecolor HS sources, the Joker 7' Octodome and the GFM dolly and jib arm meant no movement of light, lens, grip or flag wasn't achieveable in a moment.
