  1. Do the table or desktop lamps in shots have a particular purpose? What is the typical purpose of those lights in frame cinematographers use them for? Once I noticed them turned on almost all the time, I now can't stop doing it. Sometimes one or more are turned off. I would also like to know whether DPs like to mix light, especially artificial light and daylight, and why, since this is something I thought was ugly and should be avoided. It seems it's quite the reverse. In the end, light coming through a window and through a curtain – is it almost always filtered through something invisible in a shot behind the window or the other way around?
