Should the camera angle be changed? Successful lighting begins with the overall composition and ends with attention to detail. Shaping the Object with Multiple Light Sources Multiple lights, gobos, and fill cards can be used to shape objects for specific lighting requirements.

Reading the main and fill lights for lighting ratio does not necessarily mean reading the darkest part of the scene; rather, it means reading the important shadow areas and the important highlight areas. This method may not be as accurate as others because light will spill over from the main light into the shadow area when taking a reading of the shadow side.
