.....There are a few concrete things happening in photography. If you can visually think of a clock face on the floor whenever you shoot,

you will notice that where ever the (camera) points, its subject is ALWAYS center dial position and what is behind that, is ALWAYS in the 12' O'clock position...

The camera becomes the 06:00 position, and light can be anywhere around the clock, high or low. FRONT light travels clockwise from

03:00 to 09:00 position (in relation to the camera's position). BACK light revolves clockwise from 09:00 to 03:00 position.

The 03:00 and 09:00 position is called side lighting. The 06:00 position for light is called BEAUTY light. 04:30 or 07:30 is called Rembrandt

light for his regular use if its position characteristics. 12:00 position creates a silhouette and can also light your background. 01:00 amd 11:00 position is

generally referring to Accent lighting. Each light POSITION sculpts the subject matter. The power output of the light source is where

exposure value come into play. The larger MAIN-Light is the one I set my camera to...the FILL_Light keeps the shadows from going pure black.

(within four F-stops for a normal lighting setup). The MAIN-Light is usually stronger than the FILL-Light.
