Sample text

In my philosophy of teaching lighting, I don’t just want to tell you where to put the lights, I want to help you understand what light is, how it works and, more importantly, how to control it. Once you have a strong basis in those fundamentals, you can figure out where to put the lights for yourself without following some paint-by-numbers sketch. So, I start from the beginning. I said it in the intro, and I’ll say it again, light is life. Everything we see, everything we experience through our eyes, is due to light; or, more specifically, the interaction of light with the objects in our world.

T For cinematographers, exposure is the main brush in their palette. Exposure isn’t just a technical setting on the camera, it is a very carefully considered artistic decision about how to best represent the lighting in the scene to tell the story. Exposure Basics Let’s take a look at the fundamentals of photography. Photography, as I’ve already espoused, is the art of capturing light. The real artistry and skill, though, comes from the control and manipulation of that light. It’s important to understand how the digital sensor in your camera sees and interprets that light.

One set of cones is sensitive to red, one to blue, and one to green. This is, however, only a theory. No one really knows, yet, how the eye and the brain see colors. To that end, no one really knows if two people really see the same color. Although two people can look at an orange and say, “that color is orange,” if I could jump inside your brain and see through your eyes, your “orange” might look quite different from the orange I’m used to seeing. Yet we both call it “orange” because all of our lives that interpretation of that color has been the same.
