As I work on the script for Against the Grain, I’m considering the scenes and if my studio is equipped with the appropriate props. For the chair Esperanza’s sitting in here, I forked out $8.00. I couldn’t resist because it’s so her. A challenge I’m experiencing in the studio right now is lighting and eliminating the shadows. While the shadows can come in handy for certain shots, they are something I need to avoid for the most part. I did a few quick shots today and now mulling over how I can rearrange the studio for the best light to reflect on the stage to capture these misbehaving dolls.
I rather like this look of antiquity but I sometimes wrestle over whether it’s appealing enough. At any rate, the resonance it has now won’t change in any dramatic way in the midst of what’s going on now. However, I need to get the lighting corrected asap.
Dear folks, what stumbling blocks have you scratching your head already in this new year? Better yet, whatchu gon’ ’bout it?
