Mr deakins,

                      Can you recall this court room set up lighting diagram. Because I believe some tricks involved in this shot. You committed vertical long windows in the frame. Those windows are not blown out.The windows got diffused white. What diffusion  and how many layer you was put on all Windows. What kind of fire power needed in this shot. When you commit the windows in the frame where you were put the lights positions. What about the practicals on ceilings.

The windows were probably diffused with 250 on the glass. Then there was a second layer of light grid diffusion on frames outside the set. Beyond this I think I was using an array of 2K Blondes to evenly cover the whole thing. I use 2K Blondes a lot in this kind of situation as they offer an efficient way to get a wide span of even light. The practicals were no doing much as far as lighting the room and I would have had 60 watt bulbs in them.

Well lot 2k blondes means did use three 2ks for one window.. there is a four windows. Approximately how many 2ks per windows. Why centre window only looking not having horizontal blind. I think it's clean and some of the bottom portion opened. Why opened?

There were two or three rows of Blondes stacked two high. I think there may have been a 10K or two in there as well. I have no record of this scene but I know I was basically creating one long soft light which was a little more intense at the center than the sides. The blinds might have been left off the center windows as a way to allow in more light at this point.

Do you mean approximately 5 x 2ks per row. Each window like this serious

Probably more like 2 rows 9 x 2K Blondes over the whole length of that wall, which would have included all the windows rather than lighting through each desperately.

Lighting is dome for a party. So this blog is about the realities of life but this concept is far away from https://www.essayuniverse.net/grademiners-review/». I will try to do some efforts to share this blog with care.
