One thing I'm still having a lot of trouble with is lighting an INT. CAR- NIGHT when using a hostess stray or front mount. I've experimented extensively with Kino tubes and have yet to find a satisfactory result. The scene always looks far too "lit." Does anyone have any simple suggestions? I know I'm missing something obvious.

Thanks,

Corey Erwin

Sometimes it's a matter of underexposing the faces enough and just letting the odd highlight move across them. Also, it depends on how bright the exterior is - in Times Square you can get away with brighter faces than you can on a dark country road. However, There will always be an element of artifice with car night interiors.

Perhaps you could try using Dedo lights for a more controlled, less soft light.
