Hello,

in cinema, in a inside scene with artificial light, very often you have a light that appears in the frame (justifying the key light) while the real source of light is a big one out of the frame.

My question is : Where can we get that fake light, the one that appears on the frame without creating over-exposure?

Thank you

You can use any practical light at all, then control its exposure. In the example of using small tungsten practicals such as a standing lamp, you can bring your own very low wattage bulbs, normally between 15 and 60 watts (available at any Home Depot or anywhere that sells bulbs), putting the fixture on a dimmer and dimming down (which will change your color temp, but is highly controllable), or if the light is in a shade and you can't see the source directly, you can wrap it or the shade with ND gel if need be.
