Dusk EXT - Glow on faces (e.g. At Eternity's Gate)

Recommended Posts

Just watched 'At Eternety's Gate' and I'm so mind-blown by the dusk exteriors!

While it seems somewhat easy to get somewhat pleasant results at the edge between golden- and blue hour, what I took away from the movie and the beauty of these scenes was the glow of the faces and the color contrast between skin and surroundings. I think it worked really well to have natural(!) blue shadows (from soft sky light being bluer than the warm sun) and without the warm sun hitting the surroundings but a last hint(!) of red sun(?) on the skin.

While this could have been the sun and even some kind of really light diffusion? (Hi Lite?)

To get some questions together:
Is there a way to support this look artificially? Get the right gel, bounce it against 12x12 UB white to have just the slightest hint of contrast on the skin?

I guess what I am after isn't any direction, it's just the difference in reflection between the talent and the surroundings with the talent's skin getting some pop without looking artificially lit or even lit at all.
