Course Description

This course is for advanced video students who want to become more creative in their use of lighting. Through lectures, demonstrations and screenings we explore the cinematic possibilities of advanced digital video cinematography and lighting. We experiment with the creative use of video production lighting techniques and equipment. Learn how to use the camera’s built-in menus to control hue, density, and contrast, while using lighting equipment and light meters to control image quality. We test the various cameras, and use filters and diffusion to create dramatic scenes in the studio and on location. We will test theory and gain practical experience in various lighting situations: day-for-night, night-for-night, available and mixed light, magic-hour, fire and candle light, close-up table tops, etc.
