Lighting by Example

I'd like to be able to learn from each other here. This thread will be for learning to get more complex lighting for the folk here. The format is:

1) Post a screenshot or viddy clip
2) Describe the lighting setup in detail
3) If you like, detail why you choose this particular setup

I'll start:
1)

2)
I have a clamp light directly to the left of the two actors. You can see the rim of light on the face and some flare from it on the left side of the frame (the XL1s doesn't show you the whole frame in the viewfinder )

Three more to the right and higher to provide fill. All lights are clamped scoop lights from the hardware store with Phillips Marathon Soft White flourescent bulbs that fit in normal sockets.

3)
I thought this lighting setup would look neat

Here is some lighting by example that shows the lighting as well...no explanation needed...I lied...the card is just a pice of foam core from the hobby store for reflecting light...lights used are craftsman 500w worklights...couple of variations are shown.

These were from our lighting tests before we shot "Average Joe"...to see if we had a prayer of putting it together or if we were just full of ourselves.
