Evan Richards: 'Reverse Key Lighting'

Freelance director / cinematographer Evan Richards posted a well-written article about a lighting technique used by many Hollywood DP's, something he calls "Reverse Key Lighting."
The idea is that the key light is placed behind the subject rather than in front (the way you would probably see it set up in most cinematography books).
Read the rest of the article, which includes images from numerous blockbusters such as True Grit (above), here: http://evanerichards.com/2012/2463
