The Art or Science of motion-picture photography is termed as Cinematography. The Director of Photography or DOP is the second most powerful creative person on set after Director. The main role of the Director includes directing the film and bring a story to life.

There are many types of lights but according to cinematography purpose, One should be familiar with both natural and man-made. Fluorescent, Tungsten, LED are some of the artificial lights whereas, Sunlight is the natural light.
This is the standard lighting set up for video production purposes. The set up involves Key Light which is to be placed at the front left side. This throws light directly at the subject. In order to fill the character or subject with soft light, we need Fill Light which is to be placed at the right to the key light. To separate the subject from the background, we need a backlight.
