Femi and the ringlight

On the Little Simz video shoot from yesterday’s post there was a scene filmed with a ringlight that DOP Nic Britt and his lighting team had cooked up. It was basically a plywood ring with a set of bare bulbs attached and wired up so that bulbs could be removed from the circuit to adjust the lighting levels or design. Really clever little homebrew, he’s a talented guy and you should totally check him out for your project 🙂

Anyway, this is Little Simz’s brother, Femi, in front of the ringlight posing for me. I freakin’ love this shot – ringlights create such a gorgeous light. Everybody looks awesome in front of one.

This was tweaked to B&W in Lightroom 5, plus a little exposure/contrast correction.
