Huh. I did the shoot today


Huh. I did the shoot today. All the equipment was fine, but the fog didn’t look good at all.

It has this even, greyish look, like it was a filter in post or something.

I’m wondering if it would look better with some backlight, to give it more contrast? Or does the fog need to be more uneven?

Here’s a part of the sequence, please pardon some of the drug related dialogue, but any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Also, the light set up was pretty poor. I had a halogen work light camera left, and had some sun light coming in from the right. The sun light gave one of the actors a nice rim light type of look, but yeah, the color balance isn’t superb, but works.
