Here we have our first set up, this mainly focuses on a mid shot with the lighting based around the camera to set up the shot. As well as a side lighting to focus on facial expressions.

Here we have our second set up, this mainly focuses on a extreme long shot with the lighting based all around the person being interviewed, the side lighting to focus on facial expressions. This may be one shot we use in our interview when the interviewee begins to talk about sad or meaningful subjects.

Here we have our third set up, this mainly focuses on a close up with the lighting based around the camera to set up the shot. As well as a side lighting to focus on facial expressions. This shot is fairly similar with the first one however we wanted to see the difference with placing the lighting further away.
