Lighting Fundamentals: In Person

This introductory class is an essential first step for those who want to learn the basic techniques of lighting for film and video. In this theory and practical demo class, participants will learn about different types of lights, their sources and applications; power basics for lights; the principles of light including colour temperature; establishing the style and logic of your lighting approach; and the essentials of light metering, gels and diffusion. Scenes will be analyzed to identify the different tools used, and the creative choices made to achieve a specific visual aesthetic will be discussed. This workshop is an essential foundation for anyone interested in the art of lighting working with a cinematographer and shooting their first film.

The Camera Theory and Cinematography Fundamentals workshops are strongly recommended as a prerequisite to this class. Participants are asked to bring work gloves to the workshop.​
