Are you sure you want to delete this?

Sometimes when I want a dim ambience after the room lights go out and I don’t want to cross-fade the lights, I’ll light the room to a higher stop and have the dim ambient light also on but too low to affect the scene much, but when the room lights go off, I open up the iris to make the dim ambient light more visible — for example, the lit room is at f/2.8 but I open up to f/2 when the lights go out and now I can see dimly into the darkness due to the weak ambient light that was always on.
