Following are links to a couple of very useful You Tube demos that Ka Ho discovered, for classic 3-point lighting. While they are well done, please bear in mind for most news and documentary situations, we will only normally achieve 2-point lighting…. ie. a key light (set more straight on to the interviewee rather than at 45 degrees as suggested in the demo) plus a back light (or kicker), working in tandem with the key light. There won’t be too much shadow on the face because of the absence of a fill light, but if it bothers you, then try using the reflector (usually supported on a chair to one side of the interviewee) to bounce light from the key to that side of the face. If you DO have a third light on location, it will invariably be used to do something interesting on the background.
V-light and Pro-light kits are availble for check-out. If you use them to set up 2-point lighting, you are recommended to use the V-light with diffuser as the main light, and the Pro-light (close the barn-door a bit to control the light shape) as kicker.
Diffuser and Blue gels are available in the kit.
As we only have 4 light kits, please request in the reservation e-mail if you need them.
