Lighting an interview

Lighting an interview - student project

This scene ended up being a little too dark, so the final image is a tad grainy. I created a makeshift diffusion box for the key light and used a small torch/flashlight as the fill. I used the main room light to brighten up the scene. Finally, I placed a small lamp behind the subject to light the background.

Thanks for the course! Do you have any advice for minimizing the shadows cast in the background?
