To slim a face, you would use a technique called "Short lighting":


Using the 3-point lighting system will get you the best looking lighting with the least amount of effort.

Most of every problem you have ever had, someone else has also had...generally, someone will post something online. Google searches (or searches here for that matter) will generally turn up answers for you.

The web was my film school. I went from pointing a camcorder on auto everything to lighting and boom miked sound with manual everything in 2 years using the web to research and just trying stuff out with my camera.

All of the information is out there, sometimes you have to dig a little bit if you want simple answers...there are lots of discussions on the physics of light , but the simple how-to stuff is out there too...just have to dig a little.
