  1. Hello, I could use some advice on a lighting approach. I have a shoot that takes place in a diner. I’ve attached photos. 2 people sitting at a table in the back of the diner with windows far behind them at the other end. My question is how do I light them and how would I use the windows. I can push lights through the window but not sure if it would do anything since the subjects are so far from them. Since it’s a long scene I should probably use artificial light anyway for consistency even if it doesn’t hit them. But l also want to add light from the inside to hit them that is motivated by the windows and give them a nice edge. The problem is I don’t know where to put any lights. We have a wide shot that sees almost the whole diner and the singles are shot with 2 cameras from different directions. I could front light it but I don’t want it to look so flat. Any tips would be much apprecieted Thanks
