Use 3 point lighting for professional studio lighting

Three point lighting can be used to achieve professional studio results. For this, you will need: a key light, a fill light, and a backlight. This creates an even distribution of light on the subject. It removes shadow. The lights must be set up in a 15 to 45 degrees angle from the camera. The key light is the primary light source for filming. It should be at a 45 degree angle from the camera. The second light most important light is the fill light. It should also be 45 degrees angle from the camera. It needs to be either a lower wattage or must be pulled back. You can add a gel to add color to filming. Finally, the backlight must be directly behind the subject, and it must be out of the frame. It must have less wattage than the key light. This will make the subject look more 3 dimensional. Tape down all loose cables, and allow lights to cool, after shooting.
