Lighting Breakdown - Shadows and Contrast - "The Last Deal" Short Film


This is a Lighting Breakdown for a high contrast, shadowy look. I also go over a few things in Color Correction and Color Grading to achieving this look in Davinci Resolve.

Personally, I don't like too much "post contrast" or "post production contrast" so getting the contrast correct on set with the lighting is a must. This is how I would accomplish this look on my own projects.


Some other videos where I show how I would accomplish different looks:
