The thing is that you definitely are going to like seeing the soft light on your actor’s face and that is something that you definitely want because a hard front light could look really bad, but of course by putting a directional hot light on the back of the actor’s head you are going to light up the actors neck and ears and this is going to make a really awesome effect on the subject that looks really intense, especially if the natural lighting of the shot is rather dark. This is something that you would like to do in a really intense conversation scene or something that involves crime or drama in some way or another, and that is because this type of lighting or multimedia lighting is something that elicits a really intense emotion and looks really crazy in general and that is exactly what a lot of Hollywood filmmakers use this technique for in general.
