In my television production class we have been studying the importance of lighting. As an experiment we went into our TV studio and the students and I took pictures of each other with different lighting arrangements. Here are some of the results:
Cailyn is lovely (as always!) but if this was for a real television interview or program, the lighting on her needs to be much better.
This is an example of flat lighting, which our textbook says produces "uninteresting pictures with little depth and modeling."
So we need to make some adjustments to achieve a nicer, more flattering lighting combination.
Jessica seems happier too about this lighting set up!
You can see how the fill light to Franklin's right illuminates the right side of his face.
The backlight behind him on his left side gives Franklin an interesting glow around his head.
Looking pretty GQ FH!
I like this YouTube video on three point lighting.
