I happen to catch Visions of Light: The Art of Cinematography the other night and there was an interview with Gordon Willis the cinematographer for the Godfather series. He talked about his use of overhead lighting on the movie. He kept shadows in Marlon Brandos eyes to add mystery and drama to the scenes. I photographed a standard headshot for a corporate business and Mark also need a separate headshot for his book jacket as a horror mystery writer. I thought I'd try the overhead lighting and some other stuff. 30 degree grid on C-stand pointing down and a 20 degree grid on a thunder gray seamless background.
