ighting with Book Lights

In this video, Matt from the A-Team shows how to set up a book light on set, as well as different materials that you can use to get different looks with your book light. First he places the bounce material. Sometimes the bounce is part of your set, such as a wall or the ceiling, but most of the time you have to place a bounce board. Next, he picks a light to use in the book light, and aims that at the bounce.

The placement of the light in relation to the other parts of the book light can affect how much output you get out of the light. Lastly, he placed a diffusion material on the other side of the light. This works to soften that bounced light.
