This is the Descanso Gardens teahouse that I have photographed numerous times. In a comment to a previous post, Abu Zar suggested to me that the lighting was reminiscent of Kurosawa’s, especially in Rashoman. While that wasn’t initially my intention, I agreed. This is an attempt to recreate that Kurosawa lighting here again. Kubrick especially admired Kurosawa’s lighting in Rashoman and other films. Kubrick noted the low-key dappled effect.
