Hi all -- First, let me thank you for this great forum! I was directed to it by someone I know and it really rocks! I composed and played live original music for a recent production of Humble Boy and, during the long intervals where I had nothing to do, I started looking up at the stage lights. I gradually became fascinated by the amazing amount of artistic expression that could be achieved with light--it really is an amazing medium. A friend suggested I get some PAR56s and a few gels to "play with". So that's what I did. I got the following: - 4 X PAR56s (300w) - 2 X 9-foot stands - a 4-channel dimmer A bunch of Rosco gels: - 02 Bastard Amber - 33 No Color Pink - 60 No Color Blue - 12 Straw - 25 Orange Red - 36 Medium Pink - 46 Magenta - 54 Special Lavender - 61 Mist Blue - 67 Light Sky Blue - 68 Perry Sky Blue - 85 Deep Blue So, with all this, can you suggest some interesting setups (positioning and gel selections) to try out? I'd like to see how I could re-create, say, - a sunset scene? - a bright daylight scene? - a nice sky effect on a cyclorama? - a dusk scene? ...anything else that might be interesting or surprising? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
