Video Lighting Hands-On Intensive

What You'll Learn:
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 all-day hands-on intensive 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!

In the morning we'll 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

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. In the afternoon we 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.

The afternoon 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
