Hi, Roger!

Next week I will shoot my student’s work in the pavilion. In one of the frames I have a pan with a rotation of 130 degrees from windows to the opposite wall. At the first point, the sun is falling on the person, but when he goes to the door,  (fill from the sky) falls on him  - it’s Hmi bounces from 12x12 frame, which is located on the side of the windows.

 I want to ask you about gradation light on walls, that are opposite the windows. How to create this in that frame? Flags or...?

I would suggest you place the bounce a little higher than square to the window so that the light will naturally fall off the further you are from teh window. it is pretty hard to cut a light that is square to a person standing by a doorway unless you can flag it fro the top without ever seeing that flag in frame.
