Re: Position of Hairlight

Thanks for all your advice.

I bought 3 LED-panel lights from eBay.

In my small room/studio, the backdrop spans across an entire wall. The only way to create a hair-light is to place a large stand as close as possible to the wall to hold up the hairlight as close to the ceiling as possible. Then position the backdrop (with the hairlight stand between the backdrop and wall).

I note Ed's comment that the fill-light should be closer to the camera, although I notice--from a Google image search for 3-point lighting--that the main and fill light are often 90 degrees from each other. Whereas, Ed, you seem to say the fill should be closer to the camera?

I haven't set up the studio yet, and will experiment according to all your comments.

Please add further if you have further comments if you all have any.
