Filmmaking Lighting Basics 1

Short Lighting

Short Lighting lights the side of the subject pointed away from the camera. It falls short of lighting a subject's entire face, only lighting a fraction of the face and casting shadows.

Broad Lighting

Like the lighting often used on broadway performers, broad lighting is often placed in front of the subject. As as a result, the subject is evenly lit and there are little to no shadows.
