I have a job coming up before the new year and I need to light a wall of about 40-50 feet of windows (8x4 panels) in studio. I will be lighting high key/low contrast.

My first and most obvious issue will be fighting the reflections of the camera and lights in the windows. I would imagine that by using a polarizer and pumping up the intensity of the lights on the outside of windows would help cut down on some of the unwanted reflections however the windows will be interacted with and will be opened and closed like doors in certain sections of the wall. Does anyone have a suggestion for a lighting set up that might help? Maybe using a top light,soft box, or possibly a row of chimeras favoring the subject and interior wall? As I haven't seen the studio space I'm not even sure that lighting off a grid is a possibility, so it's very likely I may have to light from the floor, which could be tricky.

Cheers
