A pack shot is  a shot of an object to be sold in commercials, the starting point is the normal lighting set up. A light or lights for the background, a back light or lights to give the subject a bright outline. For dark objects this will be a lot stronger than for light coloured subjects. In our example of the pink Teddy Bear not much back light is needed.
 
A Key light has direction coming from one side and gives the subject shape and texture. It creates shadows very visible form the POV camera.
 
A Fill light to fill the shadows and control the lighting contrast of the scene.
