Hi Roger! I was wondering about this scene. I would be keen to know what the lighting set up was. Thank you.

I seem to remember having quite a bit of light on that scene as I didn't want to ND the windows. I used three 12K HMIs through 12' x 12' frames of light grid. I may well have had a small secondary diffusion between the 12 frame and the lamp to soften the light even further and I would also have had a side cut to reduce light on the background. Quite extensive for two people sat at a table!

Worth it, I'd say. Beautiful.
