Three Point Lighting
3 point lighting is the setup you use to light a scene, especially an interview. Iy uses 3 light sources in different positions and purposes.
The Lights Used:
KEY LIGHTING – Key lighting is the main source of light. It is in front of the subject and a little bit too the side. This highlights the subjects feature and face.
BACK LIGHT/HAIR LIGHT – This light is behind the subject. It is much dimmer. It creates a white line round the subject so there back isn’t in the dark.
SIDE LIGHT/FILL LIGHT – This is the light at the side of the subject.It it dim and fills in the shadows the key light creates.
What else is used to light scenes
REFLECTOR – A reflector bounces the light in a different direction. This can be used with natural and artificial light. It also softens it when it bounces. They’re normally shiny and mental looking.
DIFFUSER- They soften light by reducing its intensity and spreading it. Normally white sheets.
BARN DOORS – These are attached to the light and they make the light frame smaller and bigger.
