Are you sure you want to delete this?

Yes, in live action you can never shoot two shots with the sun exactly in the same place so, you scout your locations, work out your shots and shoot each with the sun in a different spot that best suits each particular camera angle. There is one film in particular that is totally back lit and that is Dick Lester's 'Robin and Marion'. It looks great but it doesn't make an sense if you really stop and think about the angle of the sun from shot to shot .... but you don't.

I was working on a recent animated film and we looked at the 'real' light in a forest as captured on a 360º dome and transferred onto our scene. Of course it was all green and mushy! It was the real thing but it didn't suit our scene.
