A big moment for me was when I learned to forget all that silly 3-point, 45 degree whopidee I was taught in college, cause it’s a recipe for boring lighting.  TV stations use rigid three-point lighting.  Get higher up the food chain and you’ll be hard pressed to find somebody doing it.  I’ve been really, really blessed to have worked with some great gaffers on film and video sets.  Want to learn to light better video?  Then study film lighting.  Subtly varying color temperature, light height and position is a big part of it.  Learn to paint with light and tweak until it’s perfect.  Oh, and have fun. 😉
