I'm a classical man and was particularly struck by one of the images in the Sept. 2011 issue of American Cinematographer (http://www.theasc.co...ymous/page1.php), the third one down on the right, of Oxford seated at his desk. This is a superb composition is every respect, and the lighting is something I'd like to try to replicate as a learning exercise. My guess is that a tall, fairly narrow softbox created the highlight on the pewter vessel and was either egg-crated or carefully flagged to control horizontal spill; a hard light of some kind, possibly a Source4, created the shaft of key light on the subject and the glare-angle highlight on the chair back.

Anyone know or have further insights to share?

Gee, 151 views and no written response. I must have said something wrong. Perhaps someone would let me know if I have addressed the wrong question, the wrong forum, or what. I will certainly appreciate it.
