Hi if anyone could help me out, or give some advice...
i'm currently doing a large scale shoot. photographing roughly 60 people and 22 cars in a grid 6x4 (as pictured) from 2 scaffolding rigs 5m up. there will be 2 5x4 cameras on each rig, each photographing one half of the shoot. (ie, left camera photographing 11 cars on the left, right camera photographing 11 cars on the right etc.)
the cars are able to start a max of roughly 10ms away from the cameras.
i was just trying to work out the angle of view for a 150mm lens on 5x4. I know this has been brought up a bit in the past, but i just can't work it out myself.
due to time and lack of funds to keep hiring equipment doing tests, i was trying to work it out on paper as to how far apart each camera should be and how close each camera has to be to it.
does anyone know what the angle of view is for 150mm and 135mm?
thats the general layout.
the lighting will be broken up into 8 sections. first by in half, then into each row.
lack of lights and power means i can't do it in one shot.
i'm familiar to large shoots, but nothing this big. i have 10 tech. helpers on board to do this and 30mins to setup and shoot each lighting setup.
if anyones got any advice, love to hear it.
