Today on The Slanted Lens, we are shooting a stylized shot of a girl with an umbrella being blown by the wind — just a fun exercise in lighting on a set.

We will create an environment with three main elements: 1) clumps of grass in the foreground, 2) a tree branch from my backyard, and 3) a gray and gloomy backdrop. We created a small structure for her to lean on that will give the impression that she is leaning into the wind. A couple large fans and some handfuls of leaves will complete the set.

It does not take a lot of large elements to create a large looking set. Get out there, take those elements around you and create some interesting environments. Keep those cameras rollin’ and keep on clickin’.
