Position of Hairlight
1

Can I have comments on placement of the hair-light in 3 point lighting?

Most recommend that the hair-light be directly opposite (1 in the diagram) the Main light.

Whereas some recommend that it be directly above-behind the subject (2 in the diagram), i.e. facing the camera.

I don't want an overly-dramatic lighting.

I'm new to studio lighting (have always natural light. I'm setting up studio lights to create youtube videos with completely black background.)
