Male: What are you going to do?
Male: Okay he’s got—is that what you want to do John?
John: Yeah, I’ll bring it. Kick your light with that.
Male: Okay so I don’t have to explain it what you’re going to do here. We all—he got all this whole switch. So he’s got a meter and then we’re going to meter port and then we’re going—he’s going to put the band right. Cross front here. Shooting here with the white angle will actually get all this. We’re going to pull one item behind them facing this way and that’s going to be—its going to light them like you know oh just go look like 0033 and then let’s go look like that your album from 1975 there you go. And then we’re going to bring a 0040 and probably one light in front and we’re going to match the—this can be a little slow speech, we’re going to match the ambient with the stroke so we can pull in all that nice. Light that disappeared.
Male: You’re going to match the ambient with the stroke.
Male: Yes but this is might half a second at F8 that I make the ambient like go even brighter to stops.
Male: That’s the idea.
Male: This maybe a total a flop.
Male: Oh we’re going to find out.
Male: We’re going to find out.
Male: So John—
Male: We see that movie right along in hump. This is James doing his best mono from 1987.
Male: And not screwed up.
Male: Okay this is our—so 0128.
Male: Say again.
Male: We’ll because he going in a wide angle and he’s going really low having that on the floor was really between Jill’s legs.
Male: Which will give us some serious flare?
Male: Put it right in the middle of their backspace okay.
Male: So they actually back out the light?
Male: Exactly and we’ll just going pin later on them.
Male: Come on let’s go.
Male: So what we need to do is we need two meter reading on their back and just to see how much is going to come out there. All that John? Okay let me get a meter reading on that.
Male: Are we good? Try out.
Male: That will be a really good relay.
Male: Yap. So we had more light.
Male: Work the light are basis.
Male: I’m going to throw shadow anymore.

Male: Who’s shoot is this, either John?
Male: John’s? Who is the boss?
Male: John and you tell me what to do.
Male: Yeah I know 0305.
Male: John, here’s the top aren’t you?
Male: Yeah that’s right.
Male: F8 F5 and black and dash and those lights.
Male: Don’t forget to throw ambient in there.
Male: I’ll just explain what you just did there.
Male: That about half a second exposure and I’m at 17 0516 right now and I’m going to zoom back to 40 during my exposure.
