Les Kovacs: Precision Soft Lighting

From American Cinematographer, Of Loss and Hope by Zade Rosenthal (March 1999)

"The only additional lighting we did was on a couple of takes where I hand-held an LTM 200w HMI with a Chimera and a 30 degree honeycomb, in order to pick out Whoopi [Goldberg] and give her a bit of fill. Both Stephen and I like to use the Chimeras, especially with the honeycombs, because they make such a greatly controlled soft source. I could pick out Whoopi with the 200w HMI and not hit Michelle [Pfeiffer] at all."

- Les Kovacs, Gaffer for Stephen Goldblatt, ASC on The Deep End of the Ocean
