Hi Roger

For the True Grit: Night Exterior of Greaser Bob’s lighting scenario, I notice that you mixed 2 HMI par lights with bunch of HMI Fresnel together. May I ask why? I guess multi fresnel lights created a super soft lighting environment and the 2 par lights is for creating a hard shadow? But will that be double shadows?  

 

Thank you.

The pars were strictly to reach some points in the landscape that the soft wash of Fresnel lamps were not picking out. The lamps were set in long lines so there was no sense of multiple shadows.
