Studio lighting

Film and television lighting design

Lighting plays a role in conveying information, expressing emotions, accentuating the atmosphere, portraying a character and psychological changes in the film. It affects the formation of the film’s tone and the presentation of the film’s style. It forms an opposing and unified relationship with the film’s tone and combines with other modeling methods to express the film’s rhythm and melody.











Use of light can be divided into the following types:

Front light: that is, forward light. This refers to the light that illuminates the subject in the same direction as the camera.

Side light: side light. Light from the side of the subject that is 90 degrees to the left and right. The light from the side of the subject that is 45 degrees forward from the left and right is called front light; the light from the side that is 45 degrees behind is called side backlight. The contrast of the side light is strong, which is conducive to the three-dimensional and texture of the object.

Backlight: also called backlight, contour light. The light coming from behind the subject makes the object clear.

Top light: the light shining from above the subject, producing a heavy projection.

Bottom light: Also called lower reflection. The light shining upwards near the subject

can cause a sense of horror in the character.
