One thing I always noticed about the lighting on the TV show Lost, was the really nice catch lights on practically all shots on the exteriors. 

 

Any thoughts if on the show these were just close by to actors off camera, or were these perhaps very large sources placed much further away using more powerful lights?

According to this photo (http://farm1.staticf...996c9019f_z.jpg), I would say they used hmi (joker 800 ?) with chimera on close-up for catch light and fill.

 

But for wider shots, they must have used bigger lights with butterfly frame I think.
