Hello, all.

In discussing a scene from Deliverance with a friend, where they stop for gas and try to arrange for their cars to be driven down to the end of the river (it soon then begins the Dueling Banjos), the sunlight appears to go in and out from behind a cloud. I am convinced that Zsigmond used artificial light to control this, my friend is convinced it is natural daylight and they were magic moments caught on film.

I would appreciate your comments. I have attached a link to a photobucket page that has a series of screenshots from the same continuous take.

Thank you.

If he used artificial light, then he used one GIANT source: there are not multiple shadows from multiple sources, AND he apparently lit the background with it as well, as its light level changes too (watch the treetops on frame left).

 

I'm siding with your friend. No question.
