Re: How to shoot Black Background video? - with light only on the subject

As Mike mentioned, get the subject as far away from the backdrop as possible. When lighting the subject, be sure to light from the side and flag off the spill light so it won't fall on the backdrop. If the subject is looking directly into the camera, you'll need light from both sides (unless you're going for the dramatic look); if they're looking to one side, light them from the direction they are looking. Move the lights around to get the look you want.

Good Luck

Mark
