Video Lighting Hands-On Intensive

Boulder Digital Arts presents Video Lighting Hands-On Intensive!

Good lighting is the key to professional-looking videos. Whether you are lighting an interview or a scene for a movie, there are some basic theories and techniques you need to know to get the best results.

In this class we'll start with the basics and build from there. You'll learn about color temperature as well as the most common types of lighting instruments and how to use them to create 3-point lighting and beyond.

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:

  • Intro to color temperature and why it matters
  • Overview of the most common types of video lights
  • How to create basic 3-point lighting
  • How to modify and control the light
  • How to light a portable background

We'll continue with Video Lighting 202!

Who Should Take This

Beginning videographers who want to learn professional lighting. If you aren't comfortable with the manual controls on your camera, you should take Digital Video Camera & Lighting Basics first.
