The key to any good image is lighting. Although Hollywood spends millions of dollars on lighting equipment – you can achieve the same kinds of lighting results with everyday tools you can find at your local hardware and home improvement store.
Learn the secrets to excellent lighting on a micro-budget! Jay Holben shares tips and techniques from his book “A Shot in the Dark: A Creative DIY Guide to Digital Video Lighting on (Almost) No Budget”.
This is the fifth session in our six-part monthly Cinematography Lab series – Fall Cycle.
