Hey guys this article is about High-key, Low-key & Harsh lighting tutorial. It’s very impotent for beginner filmmaker to help his/her lighting setup.

High-key lighting: High-key lighting is a smartness of lighting for film, TV, or shooting those goals to decrease the lighting ratio present in the scene. High-key was formerly done moderately for technological aims, since early film and TV did not contract well with high contrast ratios, but now is used to advise a happy mood. It is often used in sitcoms and entertainments. High-key lighting is usually quite similar and free from dark. The language of High-key lighting comes from the key light.

Low-key lighting: Low-key lighting is a smartness of lighting for photography, film or TV. It is a necessary element in creating a chiaroscuro effect. Traditional photographic lighting, three-point lighting uses a key light, a fill light, and a back light for illumination. Low-key lighting often uses only one key light, optionally controlled with a fill light or a simple reflector. The term “low key” is used in cinematography to refer to any scene with a high lighting ratio, especially if there is a predominance of shadowy areas. It tends to heighten the sense of alienation felt by the viewer, hence is commonly used in film noir and horror genres.

Film making & Film making career are totally elite profession & I think it is known to all. The students of this profession are different from any other professions. This subject is based on theory & practical case but practical case is the main focus on this subject. Though practical case is the main focus for this subject but you shouldn’t negate theory. Because theory is the key & practical is the path to find out your way. So you shouldn’t walk without key to find out your way.

As a film student you should do some extra work to build up film making career & leading good films from generation to generation.

1. Watch Movie:  As a film student you have to watch movie at least ten to twelve in a week. Because it’s the way to build up your imagination power & filmmaking presenting system.

2. Build up Observing power: Try to build up your observation power & try to catch small matter to large matter & observe those matter in natural way.

3. Children’s mind: Learn gatherer, observe & catch everything in your mind as a children’s mind. Because it is only the way to find out the method in naturally.

4. Practice: practice makes you perfect & builds up your experience

5. Theater: theater is totally additional work. It will build up your acting knowledge & sense. It will help you to find out; what types of acting you need from actors or actress for your character

6. Film e Add: always try to discuss about film & film related subjects with your friends.


7. Active with workshop: try to add you with different types of workshop such as painting, photography, discuss etc. it will help you to make sense, improvisation, thought, enhance abilities etc.

8. Literature: film & Literature is related subject. The activity of this one talks story in visually & another is written. Literature helps to make a film by giving the author main theme in a movie. So, as a future film maker you have to read more literature and you should also remain that film is reflection of literature.
