From the basics of 3-point lighting to understanding light temperature and how to light for mood, green screen and day-for-night, this 3-day workshop goes beyond the lighting lecture and demonstrations taught in our Basic Production class. This hands-on workshop answers many questions about classic lighting setups along with specialized light needs.
Among other tricks and techniques offered in this class, you'll learn how to setup and light for interviews, how to setup and artistically light for product shots, and how to make the sun work for you with outdoor lighting tricks using scrims, reflectors and diffusion.
This 3-day, hands-on course is for students who understand the basics of video shooting techniques, and want to improve their videos by employing professional lighting techniques. Because you will not only learn how to do the setups, but also be doing them yourselves, seating is limited. Register today!
