Hello, I searched the forum to see if the topic has been adressed already but it seems like it hasn't. I was wondering how we could effectively light a kitchen table scene with a low hanging chandelier or practical lamp fixture that is visible in the frame, especially for a wide shot. Is there a good way to do it? It seems to me that the lack of place would make it hard to have a balanced angle, you would either light it from above the chandelier and get disgracious "midday sun" shadows on people's face or you would have to light from under the lamp, creating flat unflattering shadows. Or is it that the practical is lighting the scene? In that case if the chandelier is made of frosted, stained or transparent glass it would blow out completely.
Thanks for your replies!
