Mr deakins,

                      Given image from Barton fink. Any info you can share on the lighting for these shot. Because the picture looking there is no enough space in left side.the light source come from left side.

I was no doubt bouncing a light fro above frame onto a soft cloth which is to the left of the practical lamp and a little above it.

What about the fill light?

I don't use fill light in the way you might be thinking of it. If I want a softer light I create a larger source rather than setting another source that is unrelated to the main one.

If i under this correctly, in regards to fill lighting are you looking for more of a natural wrap around light? Something akin to the windows in a "north light" photo studio.

It's my understood from your answer. If I am wrong correct me. Basically your theory is the larger light source would hit the face from left side wether right side of the face it act as side light and some more light falling on another half of the face partially. It's depending upon the light angle. Is that wrap the light roger?Which size of the source you used for this hotel room shot?

Yes, that would be a similar effect.

Current post. Hotel selection is a very important process during any trip. That even if it is a movie. When my family and I went to Alachua, Florida, we were lucky to use the services of https://planetofhotels.com/en/usa/alachua»». Hotel lighting was at the height and our eyes were at rest. It is necessary to carefully read the testimony of eyewitnesses to the hotel room was at the height.
