3 Point Lighting

The light direction in a photograph determines what type of feeling is set for the picture. Background light separates the subject to the background and give it space in between them. Short light and broad light are use to light the subject. Short light refers to the subject short space in their face when the light hits. The broad light is when the subjects majority of their face is exposed to the light. A fill light adds light and shadows to give a different feeling about the picture from the contrast between dark and light from one side of the face to the other side.
