How To: Lighting - Interviews


This article provides helpful information about the components of interview lighting.


LowelEDU provides a series to help you learn how to better light your subject. These interactive tools allow you to change the lighting setups to better understand terms and placement. In Components of Interview Lighting you'll develop the skills to light an interview subject for video.

"Using this interactive player, you can turn on each light in the setup individually to see its effect. You can also view the entire setup to see placement & choice of fixtures. These 4 lights: Key, Fill, Hair, & Edge, form the basics of a well lit portrait. Familiarize yourself with each light and its effect on the whole picture."
