The river is actually a blue tablecloth, on my dining table. I couldn't shoot this at my normal place on my desk, where I have lamps set up, so I had to use natural lighting from a window. Which is why the quality of light is a bit different to normal.

Er, I mean... They're standing by a river now where the forest has thinned out so they're in stronger sunlight, which is why the light looks different!

2014-07-21 Rerun commentary: My lighting setup was always kind of makeshift. I had a powerful desk lamp which I used to light most scenes, but apart from positioning it and trying to bounce the light off walls to diffuse it a bit, that was about as far as it went. I had grand visions of building a set/studio thing for the scenes, with some cool customisable lighting rigs with diffusers and so on, but I just didn't ever have enough room to do anything like that. I need a study or an empty garage or an art studio or something.
