Hello
I want to start simple in my education.

2 people are facing each other talking In windowless room. The cut would be from person to person. A 2 shot to establish they are together but then each cut is one person talking and no over the shoulder.

Should all the lights be exactly the same length from each subject and should they be coming from the exact same angle.

Should I measure distance and and angle from the first subject and then replicate it when lighting the second.

I ask this to learn and while practicing at home I have to be both people as I have no one else to help me.

Thank you
Barry
