01 Paint with colour

We bought some gels to al­ter the colour of the light we were paint­ing with. You could buy pro­fes­sional-grade plas­tic gels, but we used cheaper over­head pro­jec­tor ac­etate sheets to cover our torch. We found them for only £4 on­line. We fixed them to the torch with a rub­ber band.

02 Clip ahoy!

Given the im­pre­cise na­ture of light paint­ing, the set­tings you use will not be clad in iron, so look at your his­togram to check if the shad­ows or high­lights are be­ing clipped. If the graph is stacked up against the walls at ei­ther side, then this data is ir­recov­er­able and you’ll want to reshoot.
