Yes you can wash it with directional soft light then add the spot hard light that is known as the 'kicker'

Thanks a lot for your professional advice!

Have to change my light setup to build on it. I used two small LED panels for my setup, and there is no chance to add a spot hard light using those. Have to think about that ... A strong focusable LED flashlight might do the trick, but I'd have to borrow that somewhere. Will see ...

Thanks again!

Phil
