A New Take On 3-Point Lighting: The 4 C's

Tim Kang, Quasar Science Color Engineer and Cinematographer, unveils a new way of thinking about 3-point lighting setups.

With the 4 C's, you can break out of the traditional Key, Fill, Backlight mentality, and push your abilities to be creative with light! Unlike traditional 3-point lighting examples, Tim conceptualizes what each light accomplishes, and shows how they can be manipulated to give different feels.
