So with today’s blog post we are starting our smart phone mini series which will teach you how to shoot great looking video using just your smart phone. But before we continue there is this one thing that you should now about me. I caught a film bug very early in my life, after finishing high school I went to film academy where we shot the majority of our student work on film cameras while still using film stock, and immediately after finishing the Academy I’ve founded my own video production company that has grown into a full video agency with well over 100 million online views in the last 2 decades.
With today’s post we are starting our cinematography 101 mini series with our favourite topic of them all – lighting. In cinematography there are 3 main light roles that you are going to use to light your subject face in a basic three-point lighting setup. These three main lights are the Key light, the fill light and the back light which is also sometimes known as a rim light or a hair light. Before we proceed we would like to make a note that the backlight and the rim light are not the same, but for the purpose of our today’s post we can treat the rim light and the backlight as lights coming from the same family.
In today’s show we want to discuss a subject we truly feel deeply about. The why and the what of the Profilmmakers show. “What” is our Profilmmakers show all about and “why” we are creating weekly content for our amazing community?
Well our weekly show is designed to help you become a better visual storyteller.
