Lighting for Portraits

On this blog right now, I am in the middle of a series of posts on lighting. Last night I just happened upon this video from photographer Jay P. Morgan. In it, he goes through the different types of lighting setups for shooting portraits. You will not hear this same terminology much in video production, but the principles are sound and will give you a better understanding of how your placement of the key light affects the feel of the shot. Make sure you watch the video all the way to the end--you will be glad you did.
