Interview next to a window

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm new to the world of cinematography.

 

I'm wondering what would be the best simple 3 point lightning, to shoot an interview next to a window (2 meter distance).
I'm looking for something that look like a bright natural day, with the light "coming" from the window.

 

I was thinking about:

- A big diffusion on the left (frame side)

- A bounce in front of the person

- a back light also coming from the left side

 

Thank you !

I personally hate shooting by windows because if the interview is in the afternoon and goes on for hours then the beginning of your footage looks different from the end of your footage.

 

Have the window act as your key if it's bright enough outside. Then utilize some bounce on the opposite side for a smooth fill. And yeah I think backlight is a good idea as well. Make sure it's color balanced to your daylight (or not if you're going artsy).
