This exercise is called "Lighting the Scientist" and is done each semester in CFV 368: Lighting for Film and Video Productions, taught by Scott Vanderberg.

The project illustrates the use of a practical light in the frame, and how at full exposure the bulb is too bright for the camera. So we dim it down and recreate the bare bulb light with our instruments, then add some "moonlight" through the window.

Step One - the bulb at full exposure
Step Two - the bulb at proper exposure
Step Three - key light added
Step Four - key and separation
Step Five - key, separation, and lamp
Step Six - key, separation, lamp and kicker light
Step Seven - complete lighting setup
