Side key-light - How to get eye light in both eyes in Lighting Posted 8 hours ago On 11/8/2023 at 6:08 PM, Nicolas U Hepburn said: I tend to overthink the motivation of lights a lot not realizing that you can actually get away with a lot. Exactly. It takes a while to realize this I think. I tend to over-complicate things to make sure it's all perfect at times too. But a lot of cinematography is tricks of light anyway. So if I feel I need something (like an eyelight that has no motivation) I'll add one regardless of where the light in the scene is supposed to be coming. As long as it doesn't look completely absurd.
