When you use a three-point lighting setup, make sure that your key light and your fill light are approximately at a 45 degree angle from the camera. Bring the lights higher than the level of the camera and tilt them down at around a 30 or 45 degree angle, whichever you’re comfortable with. Make sure your backlight is also higher than the level of the camera.
To reduce glare coming into your lens, i suggest using a UV Filter.
In reference to the background being blasted with light, try using a better diffuser on the light, egg crate diffusers help to cut down a lot of light. Also, make sure that your background light is not too close to your background, you want the light at it’s closest distance at 3-4 feet at an angle from the background.
Here’s an excellent training video for lighting that you should check out, it’s called “Lighting Made Simple”, and you can buy it on TubeTape.com, click on the Video Instructional tab.
