John - Awesome steeplechase image there.
Gunzarro - Thank you for the compliments. The shots at the Fox stages were sort of lit. I had two Arri 650's bounced against the ceiling over the board area. It wasn't white, but at least it was light colors, then we used two Balcar strobe heads with grids but only for the modeling lamps - to put some light on the walls. There was one on each side crossing over to the opposite wall. Even though it's all RAW, I usually set the camera WB to somewhere around 2500-2700K so I get a preview that is pretty close.
At Skywalker, it was mostly ambient, but in a couple of shots I had to bounce a light on the floor to light the back of a chair. And those chairs, btw, can take half an hour to place precisely. When you're shooting that wide, the slightest change is quite evident. There were also a couple of the recessed lights that were either burned out or had been broken during a recent speaker installation, and didn't get replaced in time for the shoot, so I had to relight them in post, which was actually easier than I thought it was going to be. Even though it's the ambient existing lighting, there's a lot of balancing that goes on to get it to look like it does, particularly with the computer monitors and level meters.
