    Thank you for this, doing my first shoot this weekend and been trying to figure out exactly how I want to do the lighting, this helped me a ton.

    Awesome Ed, Thank you.
    I have a question, what about permanent light, like LED? I have zero experience with artificial light, stop photography years ago and I only deal with natural light, for the type of photography I use to do, but I really want to learn about artificial light, in studio and outside, I thinking of getting the Neo2, I really like the idea of being able to use as permanent light and as strobe, I could adapt a "cheap" softbox on it. I'be being watching several videos about light, but yours is by far the best and really simple to understand.

    This is a very clear explanation of 3 Light Setups. It helped me to explain to a person better than I could have just by speaking. Thank you, this is a really great video.

    I don't usually comment on YouTube videos but I have to say, as a rookie just learning all of this lighting stuff, you are hands down the best teacher I've found. You're a natural. And I say that as someone who occasionally teaches college. So, keep doing what you're doing, brother.

    What type of light you recommend for the back light source to get that type focused lighting?

  18. Aaron Productions
    October 14, 2018 at 06:43

    Hey Ed, what software does that type of illustration? I'd really like to know. The video was really the best illustration I've seen on the topic of lighting yet. Please reply.

    This is a very illustrative and comprehensive video tutorial on the subject. The graphic animation does the explanation justice by hypothesising the lighting situations in real time while eliminating the actual human factor. Compact and precise. GREAT JOB. I will definitely follow your other tutorials. Keep up the good work.

    I like this manner of instruction. It's  direct and to the point without a lot of useless chatter. It appears to be well planned and thought out so a few minutes do not turn into a lengthy gibberish production.

    Thank you for this video…just got a home studio lighting kit this week for my birthday. I'm really comfortable with outdoor photography, however indoor studio lighting is a whole different ball game…definitely subscribing!!

    What kind of lights were all three lights being used? Is the rim or hair light a flash or continuous?

  40. chandrasekar chinnathambi
    October 14, 2018 at 06:43

    It is an excellent video explains in simple way for beginners.  Is back and hair light are same?  Do we need to have a fourth light focus on the backdrop to avoid shadow ?
