How would you light this

Recommended Posts

Director wants a really moody look and feel ... Interior day
But the location we have has 5 massive open windows , no sheers or curtains
Its a wide shot like the location picture - but Actor will be sitting on table in fromt of windows on laptop
Exposing for the outside obviously makes the actor silhouetted and the room quiet dark

Just wondering what ideas you guys may have for such a location... would you bounce Say a hmi from fill side , or throw in more light from the outside in ? Reframe so we dont see all the windows , that way could black some out ?

Based on that pic, it's already pretty moody. Those shrubs give you a great advantage cause you can light that up to look like daylight no matter the hour. Haze also helps sell a moody look.

If director want's it moody what's wrong with letting them go dark in your wide and then when you move to your closes worry about lighting?


What does the director mean by "moody" in this case?
