Hey guys,

I was just wondering what the best way to film people who may have a bit of sweat on their forehead is?
So, as far as I can tell, to reduce the appearance of the highlight on their forehead from the sweat, I should drop the KNEE value down to 75% correct?

It is run and gun interviews you're doing? In any case I would try to impose myself a bit and powder them down.

Yeah, it's mostly run and gun. Talking to guests at a wedding and so forth, getting improvised "testimonials".

You should pat them down, in a run'n gun wedding type situation, it lets them prepare and mentally.

Cheers.

It's actually a great little trick, getting people powdered down does give them a second to prepare mentally and it makes a big difference. I'll find myself doing it, even when they don't need it just to let them get their head together to be on camera.
