Hi guys
 
It's my first post on the forum, so go easy on me please ;) 
 
I given the following reference video and was asked to recreate the look in a small studio:
 

 

How would you guys approach it ? 

 

I'm thinking to have the key light very close to the camera's axis and then I think there is also a diffused backlight to fill in the shadows on the subjects left side. And of course some sort of cookaloris for the background. 

 

I'm not sure what kind of key light was used here. Is an LED through 4x4 silk, or maybe tungsten bounced of polly ? How far do you think the subject is from the back wall ? 

 

Appreciate your help. 

 

Thanks !

I think you've got it. Any kind of medium-ish sized key directly over the lens will do the trick. For distance from the background: the more the better. You'll want to get the background out of focus, plus you need room to the get lights where they need to be.
