Home Studio Lighting Tips

Eliminate Shadows

Shadows might evoke the wrong emotion or vibe, so aim to eliminate them with lighting.

Key and Fill light should be placed at camera height to avoid shadows. Key light should be a bit more intense than fill light, as the fill helps eliminate shadows.

Backlight, which helps create separation between a subject and their background, should be placed higher, and out of the camera frame.

Color Temperature

Ensure the color temperature of your light fixture complements your home studio. This will depend on existing ambient light in your space.

If you have no daylight in the space, lean towards 3200k. If you have lots of windows and natural light streaming in, shift towards 5600k. If you are somewhere in the middle, 4300k is a good baseline.

If you’re unsure of the color temperature of your light, adjust the settings to suit.
