About Practical Lights

Practical lights are lights that actually appear within the frame of the shot. In other words, they're part of the set, while also providing a motivated light source for the gaffer. In practice, this means that the practical light is illuminating the subject or that its an excuse for the gaffer to add a light that imitates or exaggerates that onscreen light.
