A plea for the use of natural light is made by the cameraman Rober Yeoman, who has shot Wes Anderson&s films (including "Moonrise", "Grand Budapest Hotel", "Life Aquatic"). In this small clip he tells for example about his use of the practical app "Sun Position Finder" to determine the position of the sun at different times at different locations, so that he can plan his shots exactly together with the director. His approach is to use the light available at a location and primarily to use it to design the lighting situation. For him, it is praise when someone thinks he has not illuminated a film especially.
He values ARRI&s SkyPanels very much and uses it like natural light, but with more control options - via app control the light temperature and brightness can be controlled exactly as required for the shoot.
