    Hello, I have to shoot a moon reflection in a window for a night scene.
    I can’ t have the reel moon. I want to use a Stage lighting spotlight 1000W with IRIS and a dimmer. Do you try this ? If I set the camera to 3200° K , do I need to cool the moon ?

    Thanks

    If you only need the reflection of the moon you might be better off using a white cut out and lighting that. You could then adjust the size of the cut out and even paint on some detail. A lamp directed at the window will surely look like what it is.

    Thanks, I think the camera is outside filming two characters in the house and the caméra pan at the end of the shoot on the reflection of the moon in the window.

    It ‘s good to pain somme détail for more realistic reflection, but what materials do you need for the cut out ( wood, fabrics…)…

    You could just use white card. You could cut out a circle of any size, preferable cheating it larger than the moon’s reflection really would be.
