All right compass points. We talked about that in terms of photography but I've also got a few compass points in this video series. One of them is to never miss an opportunity to be adding layers of information with the lights. So what we're going to do with each of these what we're calling talking heads I guess, just because I'm a big David Byrne fan and that's what they are, is to not pass up an opportunity to show you how we're lighting these. And if you look to my left and right, you're going to see these squares of light and these are, these wonderful little Rosco LitePad Axioms.
They're awesome. They're led arrays. And they're sort of the the video guys version of small flashes, if you think about it. So this is my key light. And it's popping off the, some white seamless. So we can make it a nice, big key light. There's another one, half this size on the background behind me, which you can't see. I'll just pop out here for a second. Just popping on the wall. And then there's a little rim back here, a rim light, just separating me from the background. We've got dimmers on the rim light and on the background light so our exposure is based off the key.
And we just dim these down until they look good. Wouldn't it be nice to shoot flash like that? So as we finish each one of these little talking heads, what we're going to do is stop and then we'll pull back and look at the light. So, when you're watching these in the back of your mind with that 90% of your brain that you supposedly don't use all the time, isn't that what the scientists tell us? The reverse engineering the light, because you're going to see it right at the end of each one. And they're going to be different every time. This is pretty conventional. We hope to be getting a little more out there with the future, future versions as we go through the video.
