Three-Point  Lighting Backlight -generally located above and behind the subject; the Backlight often gives the subject added dimensionality and separates them from the background.  It is  sometimes called a “hair light” for the way in which it directs light onto the hair,  Key Light -the major source of  illumination, typically the main source  of illumination within the world of the  shot (a lamp, the sun, etc.). 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.

High Key Lighting This is even lighting.  It conveys a sense of normalcy and well-being and is  often used in musicals, comedies, and melodramas.  The lighting generally does  not contradict the meaning(s) attached to the illuminated subject.  David Lynch
