I prayed for more fish to eat, and then we got this client! About once a month, they send us wild fish and Anthony shoots videos of me unboxing it, cooking it and eating it. Our deliverable to the client is a series of clips that they edit into videos like these.
Anthony is not only a stellar cinematographer but also a pretty fab food stylist. And would you believe this is all shot at night!?
Anthony recreates perfect daylight or golden hour lighting with his film light equipment. As many in the industry know, golden hour lighting, which naturally occurs in the hour before sunset, is ideal for its soft horizontal rays and its warmth on the color spectrum. However, actual golden hour lighting shifts constantly and quickly turns to sunset and then sundown.
Regular daylight lighting, such as that found in the mid-morning, also is horizontal enough to be flattering, but if you don’t hurry, it can turn to noon lighting, which shines straight down, casting harsh shadows that can look unpleasant on camera.
Thus, Anthony creates lighting that does not shift.
This concept reminds me of James 1:17, which says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
God’s light is perfect and unchanging. His warm and lasting love will never leave us in the dark.
