46. Objectively here - it's MOST intriguing to study the way these folks are LIT.

It's the LIGHTING.

I've covered a fair number of celebrities, on sets, in dressing rooms, as part of my last news-related job. I noticed that when Andrea Mitchell is in studio, you don't see as much of the flaws in her face as you do when she's out on the stump somewhere. It's the LIGHTING.

I once invited an older actress onto a local cable show I had. Her first question was - "how'd the lighting? I'd have to see how I'm going to be lit." I was perplexed by that - until I drilled down into it a little and then completely understood the concern. OF COURSE someone in the public eye would be focused on how he or she was lit! Particularly someone whose appearance matters, professionally. Lighting is amazing, what it can do - and the flaws it can mask and diminish. You might assume this was just a picky little superficial thing. I certainly did, at first. But when you think about it, it really does make a difference. And then when you SEE it, well, as the cliche goes - seeing is believing.
