I got a question for ya.
In one of the scenes of my project Im having a little trouble figuring out the right lighting for a close-up. Take a look at this clip first: http://tinypic.com/p...hp?v=1r6ope&s=7
Im not really sure how am I gonna pull this off. I mean, see those stripes on the wall? I used a cookie (venetian blinds). In the close up theyre gonna have to be visible on the face of the character and he's gonna be lying on the couch. But how do I do that, keeping in mind that I also dont want any grain etc. but a fairly good exposure?
Obviusly leaving it the way it is isnt gonna work cause then the face isnt lit enough nor properly lit.
Well, how would you go about it? Id really love to hear some fresh ideas.
Thanks in advance!

bring in a fill light and lower the contrast ratio for the close ups. The change should be acceptable. it happens in every film.
Ill consider your idea. One question, should I leave the "venetian blind effect" as it is, because Id like it on the face of the character aswell.
