The video looks at positioning the fill, key and hair lights for your shot in term of distance, angle and position relative to your subject. The video goes hand in hand with another video we recently posted entitled: “A Look at the Five Main Portraiture Lighting Patterns” by Ed Verosky which you should make sure to check out as well.
