Video Lighting 202

Join Boulder Digital Arts and Lowell Pierce on Saturday, June 13th for Video Lighting 202, 1-4 pm (and Video Lighting 101, 9am-12pm). Each session is $69 for BDA Members and $89 for Non-Members. Register online here.

What You'll Learn:

This class picks up where Video Lighting 101 leaves off. Once you are comfortable setting up basic 3-point lighting with various instruments and have a working knowledge of color temperature, you are ready to take it to the next level.

This class will go over common lighting exposure tools such as a waveform, zebras, false color and the histogram. Then we'll jump into some advanced lighting and light control techniques to help enhance your video productions.

We'll be demonstrating with professional lighting equipment during the class, but we'll give you ideas and tips on how to achieve similar results with lower-cost equipment, including stuff you can find at the hardware store!

The workshop will cover:

Overview of lighting exposure tools
Using flags, nets, diffusion and color gels
Creating moods with lighting
Fixing glare from glasses and bald heads
Lighting in daylight situations

Who Should Take This:

Beginning to intermediate videographers who want to get better and more creative lighting. We recommend taking Digital Video Camera & Lighting Basics and Video Lighting 101 first.
