Art Adams, a great DoP based in San Francisco, and also a very talented writer does a great job at describing the “underdog of lighting, aka the fill light”, its uses and best practices. He says it so much better than I, so please read (this is one article I recommend more than any on here so far, especially if you’re a DoP or gaffer).
