I love having a bright bright modelling light, the only time I'll turn it down is for really close up work when I start to smell the skin burning
. There's no reason not to pump your modelling light, it's never going to affect the exposure and it helps with pretty much everything (pupils, focus, placement).
What are you using for it? I would love to see a photo of how you set it up.
I'm confused on why you think it'd be difficult to make it look like night in a studio because this is an entirely separate issue now. Are you talking about light spill? That's obviously harder to do in a small studio, so yes, you're right but it can be controlled with plenty of doodads i.e., barndoors.
I have heard people say they can make their white background look black so I'm just thinking ahead on how I would achieve that with modeling lights ect. I'm sure I could do it outside with my model far from the background but inside I don't know. Also if I can do it what shutter speed limitations will I encounter.
I didn't realize the comment wasn't clear to you, just trying to help.
No worries it was totally clear thx
