Hi,

Very soon, I am going to act as a DoP in a student movie at The Film School in Wellington, New Zealand.

In this movie I would like to use lighting such as it was used in for example "Shawshank Redemption" or "The Girl with the pearl earring".

In these movies there's a strong light source on one hand a lot of shadows in the frame.
How do I decide on the correct f-stop when lighting like this?
And I how would I actually light the scene to make it look like only natural lighting has been used?
The movie is kind of a period movie about a cult. I need to use a lot of lights coming through windows etc.

Hope someone can help me. =o)

Thank you!

I would try searching the archive for this kind of question. It has only been discussed ad infinitum.

Immediately order the book 'Film Lighting' by Malkiewicz. ;)
