What are lighting setups in photography?

Lighting setups in photography are important for defining the appearance and mood of your image, particularly when photographing a person. A well-planned lighting setup will ensure you enhance your subjects' features while creating depth and minimizing unwanted shadows.

The three fundamental components of many lighting setups include your key light, backlight, and fill light.

Together, these lights form what is know as the three-point lighting setup, which is a classic setup for many photographers and videographers as well.
