Hello there! I am a starter video maker. I was asking about lighing an individual subject or object without lighting up to much other things? Explain: for example i am trying to light up a character in my video so that the main actor was lighted up well, without lighting other objects too much. In 3D it's easy to do you know. You just exclude and include objects in scene from lighting. But in real life you can't so far.
