This video was shot on the 7D using the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 for the wide and medium shots of Andrea and the Canon 50mm 1.8 for her close up. The lab shots are a combination of the 24-70mm 2.8, the 50mm 1.8 and the Canon 100mm 2.8 macro (with a few old sony HDV shots slipped in there). I was using a Glidetrack for some of the lab footage and the interview.
From our offices when the sun rises on a clear day in Vancouver the downtown buildings light up first before the mountains and can be as bright as the sky for a period of time, I was hoping to shoot during this time to have the city sparkling in the background. As often happens, deadlines meant we had to shoot and the day was slightly overcast so I ended up stopping up a little more and going for a brighter, less contrasty overall look in post while still trying to retain the city skyline.
The room is filled with mostly natural light, there is a 1000w Ianiro with a softbox and CTB out on the deck to camera right that lit the table and her. There is a LTM 420w pepper with some frost and CTO out on the deck to the left of camera that is hitting her hair and shoulder like the sun would, I think. I also had a silver reflector placed just below her, to the left of camera bouncing a little of the light from the Ianiro back up into her face.
