So I film a lot of presentations with my DVX100 and have a running problem where clients want both the powerpoint & speaker clearly visible in the same shot even though the contrast between the two (powerpoint = highlights and speaker = shadows) makes this nearly impossible do do properly. Is there a good way of handling this on location or afterwards during editing? Maybe some combination of the two?
Should I light the podium to some degree (pro light w/snoot would be pretty unobtrusive)? Should I simply shoot for the shadows and overlay the powerpoint slides in post? Any ideas here?
