Lighting breakdowns are my favourite way to learn lighting. You just can’t help but pickup lots of tips and techniques, and see how the different lights work together. This week we’ve got some more setups, but this time using three lights.
Lighting is something i’m really trying to dig into, and this video is the result of my latest lighting exploits. I’ve put together 4 different lighting setups, which will hopefully give you some ideas about how to have full control over your lighting. Placement, intensity, diffusion and gels are just a few of the things to consider when lighting, so it’s good to see how others work.

|Using one light is a great way to learn lighting, because it teaches you to be creative, bouncing light and using natural light to your advantage. Just because you have three lights doesn’t mean you should always use them!||Here we have some more lighting ideas, including some product / insert shots. Again, hopefully just some ideas so we can all be intentional with our lighting, not just using key-fill-rim every single time!|
|This is the first part in a brilliant series that taught me so much about lighting. Seeing a professional work in real time, and the attention to detail is inspiring.||Caleb from DSLR Video Shooter brings a great video about his keylight setup, very good use of the C Stand and reflector diffusion. It was this video that helped me realise that little battery powered LEDs were not the best thing to use!|
