Hello Roger, were these shots lit only with the practical light bulb? Do you remember the focal length that was used for these shots?

Thank you.

Yes, they were lit by the bare bulb. I imagine the wider shots were made on a 32mm and the close shot on a 50mm. I can't be absolutely sure but that is the range I was shooting in.

Looks like an additional bounce source from above the camera to me.

There was no bounce. I might have used another brighter bulb above frame to mimic the one in camera but I don't remember exactly.

Thank's again Roger, this proves that less is more.
