Lighting Video Theatrical Look: 2 Lights and 1 Reflector

One type of lighting that I use quite often for talking head and interview style video is this theatrical lighting look—a low key, high contrast background that sort of looks like the interview is taking place on stage or perhaps back stage. It works effectively because it starkly isolates your talent from the space so your audience focuses entirely on them. Traditionally you might use three point lighting to achieve this look but in this episode I show you one way you can pull it off using only two lights and one reflector.
