What is the best tactic for lighting in a large, closed space?
30m - 9m

For realistic lighting

Can anyone tell me the best way to do this ?

It's just an empty roomn so far, do you have a reference for what you want it to look like? But there could be multiple options. HDRI, Corona lights + IES profiles, Sky and Sun...

I'm talking about the best indoor lighting technique for it to look realistic

If the space is large and the light comes only from the gate, then there is a struggle with lighting and diffusion lighting

whatever situation needs presenting you'd allway want to mimic/predict/illustrate the real thing
so what's yours...

Marduk: Finally something I think I can help with. (I get a lot of great help here.) I think the strongest thing about Corona is the Sun.  If there is an opportunity to let some sunlight in anywhere, then you can take advantage of how beautiful that alone makes things look.  Try to accomplish much of the lighting that way.  Then I usually add some rectangle lights near ceiling pointing down.  I actually have not decided which is better, spheres or rectangles in terms of realism, still looking into that. I keep sky (and Sun) intensities very minimal.  And yes using an HDRI light material attached to a Cinema sky is nice too, but still need those fake openings.

Thank you
The sun definitely facilitates the process
But I am talking about closed places and without windows
Here it gets more difficult
