After 4 sessions, we now have 80 signs, with each sign performed by two signers. Many thanks to my models Rommel and Mary Jane.
Rommel waits patiently while we get the lights going.
A reflector was placed in front of the signers (supported by two chairs) to bounce the light up and soften the shadows in the face. We had two lights, one on the left and one on the right, facing the signer approximately 180 cm away.
Mary Jane and Rommel discuss the signs to be performed.
When Rommel is seated in front of the camera, Mary Jane is seated at the behind the camera to prompt Rommel which sign to perform next. Then they switch places after one set of signs have been performed. The signs were arranged into groups 10.
