I was home with a cold, mining my 4TB HD's for stock when I was asked to DP a short video shoot. Making Dirty Dr. Pepper is a thing... I guess. He wanted it lit a little rough so I used 2 Lowel DP's. One on the background and one on him doing the work. I don't think I would drink that. Dr. Pepper is made out of prunes after all. Anyway, as I always say; light is light. Vidoe or still. You just get a picture in your head and move light around until what you see matches the picture.

I am always playing with different ways to create really small client videos. I got this mp4 small enough to email but it's always a challenge. I am using a lot of the Adobe Creative Suite. Photoshop (of course), Premier Pro, After Effects and Adobe's Media Encoder. It took Photoshop's Save For Web to get the GIF's small enough. It seemed to work the best. The mp4's were even smaller. This mp4 was 5mb, the gif was 6mb. While this one worked well, I'm still looking for a better way to shrink things.
