Hello everyone. Ive been browsing this site for a while. Amazing information.

Anyway, I've a question regarding a scene that takes place at dusk. Its a bedroom set with one window. This is a controlled environment. We need to recreate a dusk light source coming through the window, while the room is lit with tungsten practicals and a china ball to mimic a ceiling light. I have two questions.

1. As for white balance, is it best to balance for the interior tungsten?

2. How would you best recommend I create the sunset style light through the window? There will be a sheer drape on the window and some staged branches just outside of it.

Again, this is a small set in a warehouse. Totally controlled

Thanks

If this all tungsten light I would WB for that.  Then your interior light will be white and if you want a warm light to come in you  can gel it to warm it up and see what simulates sunset lighting to your taste.  YOu can also put the light a little lower depending on what floor your story takes place on.  If you need longer shadows pull the light back.

Good luck.
