    Mark, I appreciate your video review of light kits but I found it so hard
    to concentrate with the drum music going on. It didn’t add any value and
    was really distracting and annoying. Sorry, but I just couldn’t finish the

    Orange T shirt against a green background! Not a good look and it looks
    like crap. Get a grip and think about the colours in your video or use the
    green screen background as intended. I just couldn’t watch any more than
    the first few minutes. Photography and video should consider the aesthetics
    of the scenes, sadly this one doesn’t.

    Some other important elements of lighting that need to be taken into
    account are the choice of lights, as well as their position in relation to
    the subjects in the shot, and also the intensity of the lights.
    When it comes to choosing which type of light to use for a shoot, it is
    important to first determine whether artificial lights will be necessary
    for the shoot. Sometimes, natural light provides enough intensity for us to
    work with, and a reflector is all we need in order to counterbalance
    shadows or achieve a more diffused look on the subject.
    Other times, an artificial light can be used either to separate the
    subject/object from the background or to render parts of their body that is
    not covered by the amount of light coming through the lens.
    The most common type of setup used in film and photography is called
    3-point lighting because it is made of a key light, a fill light and a back
    light. Of course, these do not need to be artificial light. For instance, a
    key light (or the main source of light shining on the subject/object) can
    be natural light, the fill can be the reflection of this light on the wall
    or bouncing off a reflector, and the back light can be a spot light
    directed on the back of the subject.
    There are two ways of talking about the quality of light that we are using.
    The first is soft light and the second is hard light.
    Soft light refers to light that is diffused and as its name suggests, is
    not harsh, bright and directional.
    Hard light, in contrary, is a lot more intense and therefore creates more
    shadows than softer lights. They are directional and can be adjusted by
    physically moving closer or further from the subject, or mechanically,
    through the use of barn doors, or large sheets of material or cardboard
    paper. These can also have their intensity adjusted by the use of
    diffusers, and the flood of the light can also be modified by altering the
    settings of the lens (when the light being used has a lens).
