The scenario: small kitchen of a brownstone; takes place in the morning; two windows on 10' wide rear wall, approx. 3x6'; overlooks a small back courtyard. Director wants soft "morning sunlight" in both windows. However, foliage, neighboring brownstone(s), building design, lack of space, prevent us from bouncing in diffused light from the two 4K HMI's we have available. Unable to obtain permission to set lights in the neighbor's yard, so I'm looking at directly diffusing the light into the room. Director is also concerned that if we achieve the look he wants, we won't have a proper exposure. What rag would you suggest for diffusion, that won't have a pronounced hotspot or significant light loss? Artificial silk, soft frost, hi-lite?

I like a 1/2 density soft frost personally.
