Beautifully illustrated AND illuminated.
Thank you Larry
Clear, concise, excellent summary of lighting with helpful examples. Thanks!
Thank you Larry. Very useful. Lighting continues to be an area where, at times, I let myself down. Two very pertinent, separate, recent examples – an older woman, and an older man, both with well lived-in faces. I had a key and a back, but no fill – and being older folk I should also have had my key more directly from the front, so as to mitigate what I ended up with, which was ugly furrowing in their faces.
Yup. Younger actors can take stronger light from the sides.
The older and more, um, furrowed the face, the more the key needs to move closer to the camera.
