In this video, learn how to create good lighting on a tiny budget.
- The human brain is very good at…autocorrecting the real world.…This is why it's quite difficult…to take good photographs and shoot good videos…because your brain is often lying to you…about what you're actually looking at…and the camera really doesn't lie.…So what we're going to be talking about in this video…is lighting and how to make your subjects look good…with or without fancy lights.…So first up, let's talk about three-point lighting.…This is a simple way to get good lighting…using only three lights.…Here's a lighting demonstration.…
Genuinely speaking, the most boring way to light something…is straight on from the front.…Switching to this diagram view, you can see that…the light is right in front of the model's face…and everything comes out flat and a little bit boring.…Now let's slide that light around to the side.…Offset it about 45 degrees from the subject.…This means that only one side of the face…is fully illuminated.…This is called the key light and it will be providing…most of the illumination in the shot.…
