I'm an aspiring DP, However I'm still trying to figure out the basics of lighting. One question I have is, when shooting a scene should you have one set up and keep it for the rest of the scene? Or should most of your lights move depending on the framing, and subject of the frame?
For instance, in my master shot I have a wide frame, So I light accordingly keeping lights out of frame, but for closer dialogue shots; can I change up my lighting scheme and bring lights closer in, and possibly add lights that weren't there?
Thanks for your help, and time

Next time you watch CSI, with a bucket under each ear to catch your brain as it trickles slowly out, watch to see how many people have the sun behind them. Even when they're facing one another.
