Hi Pierre –
Key Light – About 30-40 degrees to the right of the camera, above subject height
Fill Light – About 20-30 degrees to the left of the camera, about subject height
Back Light – Pointing on or towards the background
Hair Light – Above and behind the subject (on a boom if possible), slightly off center to the left – This is used to highlight the hair (or top) of the subject – It also is helpful for minimizing shadows on the floor!
These are just my staring points, always adjust for each situation based on how it looks in the viewfinder.
