To me, if you'd said "pull back" it would have been clear. But "hold back" is used in a very specific way for printing.
You could in some situations hold back the lights during exposure, by blocking that part of the image with an ND filter, or by blocking it with something opaque, which is then removed partway through. I've done it effectively with transparencies.
