Commonly known as “3-point lighting”, it’s one of the basic lighting techniques that can be used to make your subjects look good in the camera. We teach it to our first-year students as one of the first core lighting techniques that is both easy to use, but versatile enough to handle a wide variety of lighting situations.
We also did a short tutorial on the proper way to coil cables. “Wrapping it around your arm” isn’t the way to go. It’s referred to in the industry as “over/under”, and it ensure that cables come out straight, with no loops or tangles.
