Spanish term or phrase: cenital
This is in reference to lighting both for photographs and a grand piano. I have seen 'overhead', 'dome' 'zenith' lighting - does anyone know 100% what the tchnical term is?
La iluminación de los lienzos fotográficos debe ser cenital y uniforme para evitar la reflexión de luz debida a la textura brillante del lienzo.

Iluminación cenital (superior vertical) sobre el piano con mínimo de 2 focos recortados.
