Additional light on the opposite side of the camera from the key light to illuminate shadow areas and thereby reduce falloff. Filling is usually done with floodlights.
Used from the side opposite that of the key light, this light softens the shadows created by the key and evens out the lighting ratio
(especially TV and Film lighting) Light which fills the shadows that key light creates.
Light directed into the shadow areas of the scene or subject to reduce the contrast between the highlights and the shadows of the scene.
a source of illumination that lightens shadows cast by the main light and thereby reduces the contrast in a photograph
Supplementary illumination, usually from a floodlight positioned midway between camera and subject, which lightens or eliminates shadows created by key light. (See Back Light, Key Light, Three-Point Lighting). Film and video to define, distort or defy reality.
A type of accent lighting which reduces shadows or contrast.
The light source used to fill in the shadow area of a subject. Most often used in the background, allowing details to be seen.
Illumination added to reduce shadows or contrast range.
Light used to control shadows by "filling in" certain dark areas.
Supplementary light used to fill in shadows or reduce the lighting ratio. This has the result os reducing the contrast and increasing shadow or highlight detail. Fill can be provided by a artificial light or a reflective object reflecting the key light.
After the key light (primary light) is set, a fill light softens the shadows created by the key light.
Additional light used to brighten shadow areas.
Illumination from a source less bright than the key light, used to soften deep shadows in a scene. See also three-point lighting.
In a lighting setup, the fill light refers to the light source which is used to â€œfill-inâ€ the shadows cast by the main light. This source can be a flash unit, or simply a reflector that is directed on the subject to illuminate the shadowed areas and lessen the contrast.
or "Fill-in light" - Secondary light from a lamp or reflector that illuminates shadow areas. Called "Fill flash" when the light source is a flash.
A lighting design term which describes a light source or direction which is secondary, or fills in after a primary or key light source has been established.
Commonly referred to as "scoops," they provide a soft-edged field of light used to provide additional subject illumination to reduce harsh shadows or areas not highlighted by the key light.
Used to soften shadows and illuminate darker areas. The fill light is usually placed slightly below and to the side of the subject. Typically used in conjunction with a key and back lights as part of three point lighting. For more on lighting see the lighting section.
Light which fills the shadows created by key light.
Light used to fill in shadows created by key light.
Source of illumination that lightens shadows. See Fill-in.
In television, film, stage, or photographic lighting, fill light is used to reduce the contrast of a scene and to provide some illumination for the areas of the image that are in shadow. Most lighting setups will place the fill light at a 90Â° angle to the key light (in relation to the subject).
