Join Anthony Q. Artis for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a four-point lighting setup for a scene, part of Video Foundations: Cameras and Shooting.
Now in this movie we are just going to go over the basics of 4-point lighting.…So I am going to explain to you what the four lights are in 4-point lighting, and we are…going to talk a little about their positioning and some other things to keep in mind when…we are setting up these lights.…So first, a couple of ground rules before we jump into 4-point lighting, anytime you're…doing this type of lighting set up, and that is first thing that I need to have set up…is a camera, before I even open up my lighting kit or take out any lights at all, I set up my camera.…Now why is a camera the first thing that I am going to set up for a lighting setup?…Because my naked eyes are telling me nothing at all about what the camera is actually seeing.…
Remember, that there are settings such as the shutter speed, the exposure, white balance,…all of these things are going to dramatically affect how my image is actually going to look.…So the first thing I set up is a camera to make sure that I am looking at what the camera sees.…
