The first two lights will be used as a mail light and as a fill light, like you would do if you only had two of them.

The third light can be used in one of several usages:

a.) as a hair light , above and behind the subject to throw light on top rear of hair and on shoulders.

b.) as a "Skim" light, where it is behind and on the side where the fill light is. It is aimed at his cheek on the fill side

c.) as a background light aimed at the background, to give a diffused circular light pattern.

d.) as a backlight on the subject to give halo lighting effect (works best with light haired people (blonds or light brown or red), or with brides to outline veil.
