The scene is set at sunrise. A businessman in a hotel room will be waking up and getting out of bed. My question is, what is the best way to light this shot? What setup will set the mood of an interior, dawn scene?
Warm light. A 1k open face that is sent through either a venetian blind patter cut out of foam-core or even a real venetian blind set up in front of a light on a stand will do it. It's sunrise so keep it low like the horizon.
