Hello Roger I am wondering what kind of lights are your favorites to bounce and recreate sunlight when you work in a small set for example the apartment of Kate in Sicario. 

Kind regards

I was using 2K Blondes for that set but it all depends on scale. I particularly like the open face 2K as it is a very efficient lamp that produces a wide even beam.

Thanks a lot Roger. How many 2K blondes did you use to get enough exposure inside and was the bounce around 10' away from the window?

There was a balcony so the bounce was a little further away. I can't remember exactly how many lamps. We always carry a number of 2K Blondes on any shoot as they are such useful lamps, so I would have added more until it felt right. I wasn't trying to light further than the immediate area near to the French doors, so maybe 6 lamps.
