Basic lighting scheme Sadly, we do not have the luxury of dozens of lights  to illuminate our shots.  We will have three lights to  work with when we shoot. This is okay, as we have the basic three-point  lighting setup to work from. This setup is the most basic scheme for lighting a  scene, and is essential to understand if one is to ever  take on more complicated forms of lighting.

Fill Light -generally lies opposite the  camera from the Key Light; it works to  fill in the harshness of the Key Light and  diminish shadows.  Often it is the  intensity of the Fill Light in relation to  the Key Light that determines the quality  of shadows in the shot.
