Question: Shooting in Dark Room with a Spotlight.

I will be shooting a play and they will have the room completely black with a spotlight on the talent. What presets do you recommend? I read something here recently that suggested dropping the gain to zero, but I cant find that article again. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

I would drop the gain as low as I could and then open up the iris until it looks good. this will keep the noise really low, which is very noticeable when your shooting in the dark
