Hi, I'm going to shoot a mini-documentary divied in 2 scenes. I think I will use quartz lights: 1x 1K, 2x 650 (Lilliput). 1) the first scene is an interior/day on a irish pub. the shot is a medium close shot and a medium close up (like an interview). I would like to mix a daylight coming from the open door, the practicals light, and a backlight to separate the subject. How can I simulate a daylight with a quartz (I guess the natural light is not enough, the pub is pretty dark)? I'd use the 1k outside and near to the door, gel it with ful CTB (so it's 5500) and a frost to get a soft light. then I'd use the 650 as fill light without any gel but at 3200K and the other 650 (I don't know with which gel) to get a hairlight. I don't want hard light on the subject's face. 2) the second scene is an exterior/day. Do I have to match the 1K with the natural light or not? is a frost gel enough to mix artificial light with natural light? I'd like a very soft light, I don't to create a sunlight effect. in this case I can use a hairlight? I'd like hear your advices and opinion about the setup I described. Thank you, William
