The best lighting for YouTube videos is often the simplest! In this video lighting tutorial you’ll learn our go-to interview and YouTube lighting setup, three point lighting!

The 3 point lighting setup (as well as the very similar 4 point lighting setup) is one of those film lighting techniques that is absolutely foundational, and once mastered will help you to experiment, tweak and alter to form your own signature lighting style. But it all starts with the basics!

This lighting tutorial includes with several three point lighting examples and a film lighting diagram to help you fully understand names of each lighting fixture in the setup (we all know film lighting terms can be a bit weird and confusing!) as well as how each light should be positioned.
