    Hi Roger,

    I hope all’s good at your end. On your lighting plan for the opening of Skyfall, you mentioned you used a T12 and two 2k’s bouncing into a white bounce. I’m wondering if the 2k’s were used as ambient light that spread inside the room or something else?

    Also, in an ASC interview you mentioned you wanted to shoot the starting raid of Sicario with a T5.6 aperture instead of T2.8. Why did you want to shoot with a higher f-stop, was the depth of field too shallow at 2.8?

    Thanks for your time!

    The T12 created the sunlight effect and the 2Ks were set to bounce soft light into the corridor and the room. There were no lights inside the set.

    I was shooting the opening scene of ‘Sicario’ on set and a deeper stop, with more depth of field, would, in my opinion, felt more like it was shot on location.
