Additional non-diegetic light sources which reinforce the available light sources in the mise en scène. Exterior light sources ensure better control of the lighting conditions and have no importance for the content of a shot or scene. In some cases, they can be seen as extra light sources in contrast to the available light. For related information, see the entries concerning available light, diegetic and non-diegetic.
