test footage low light with adapter
just a test shot from my new thriller "COVET" i'm working on
shot with my son's friend standing in for main actor to get lighting ideas.
feel free to give feedback !

It looked nicely lit, the only criticism I would have is maybe a backdrop/hair light to liven up the background and turn on that lamp next to the chair (if it isnt already)
I was always taught to use every lamp in the room even with professional lighting, but im no professional by any means so i could be completely off.
Looks great though cant wait to see the short!

thanks brockraum, I did have the lamp on, but I also had a hair light on top of that lamp (out of sight), just didn't have it on in this take, I also had a 500 watt on the floor behind the chair pointing up to seperate him from the background but for some reason I turned that off too. I think when I shoot the real short i'll pull the chair out away from the wall 5 feet or so and have a lot more room to work in lights, thanks for your input.
