Once you have your camera set up, it’s important to consider lighting techniques. Lighting plays a crucial role in cinematography and can greatly impact the overall look and feel of your footage. There are three main types of lighting: key light, fill light, and backlight. 

The key light is the main source of light and should be positioned on one side of the subject, at a 45-degree angle. This helps to create depth and dimension in the shot. The fill light is used to soften shadows created by the key light and should be placed on the opposite side of the subject at a lower intensity than the key light. Finally, the backlight is used to highlight the subject’s outline and add separation from the background.

In addition to these basics, there are many other lighting techniques that can be used to achieve different effects such as high-key lighting or low-key lighting.

Overall, setting up cinematography equipment for beginners may seem daunting at first but with practice and patience it can become second nature. Start with mastering camera setup basics then move onto experimenting with different lighting techniques to bring your footage to life!
