Reading American Cinematographer's article on Robert Richardson's lighting of Inglourious Basterds, they describe how the gorgeous scene where Shoshanna doing her make-up used golf balls bounced off unbleached muslin and then diffused through bleached muslin. It was strongly backlit to get a beautiful mix of soft and semi-hard shadowing.

Since I don't exactly have access to truckfuls of lights, I was wondering if one could possibly bounce the sun through a window using reflectives? It occurred to me that it might be even prettier using the sun as the backlight source.

Does this seem feasible or is there something I'm missing here.

Thanks muchly.
