Okay, so we were told that we had to light the scene to match a genre; I chose the crime drama genre.
Straight away it was clear that all three shows share a similar teal and orange colour scheme, which is popular due to how well those two colours compliment each other. It is used widely in Hollywood blockbusters, however, what sets it apart here is how desaturated it is in these shows. The desaturated look gives the genre a colder and bleaker appearance which suits the themes and stories that get told.
The examples consist of quite a lot of contrast, I suppose that this is because the shots lack in colour but still create visual interest in the white and black levels of the frame.
Looking at the screenshots from each example, they almost could be the same film, the style is very similar and ties the genre together well. My scene at the moment is quite warm and well lit, however, from this point on the style of the genre will be a heavy influence on the choices I make.
Here is where I’m currently at:
My scene has changed a lot since my last post. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
- Fix the glass in shower as it blocks light
- Try a shower curtain
- Add blinds to windows
