Music video research - Lighting

Since coming back to college and back to media studies, we have continued the research of music videos in preparation for filming our own.


The first lesson was used to learn the basics about lighting and in particular, three point lighting. I learnt that there was a key light used as the main light on the subject, the fill light to make the image look more three-dimensional and the back light to re-enforce this. On top of this, I did my own outside research into four point lighting where I learnt that the fourth is a background light that is used to add emphasis to the background and/or used to eliminate shadow from the subject.
