The most common lighting setup is called 3-point lighting. This configuration includes a key light, a fill light and a backlight that can also be called a hairlight.

The key light should be three bright and provide plenty of light for your theme.


This fill light eliminates shadows from the main source. Your fill should not be as strong as your key, so although it still eliminates shadows,the fill and key lights match too tightly instead of flat lenses.

The backlight separates the subject from the background. Your backlight may be glare (no diffuse) because it does not create a visible shadow on the main body.
