The Quick Guide to Video Lighting

Quick Guide to Video Lighting
How many DSLRs will it take to change a light bulb in order one seems, since the ability to capture these new cameras, high-definition video in low light conditions so amazing, so you do not need to light anything. Right.

I was talking recently with someone and tell them about the gain from our new digital video cameras and how high you could push without too much grain and they said 'great to be spared to light. This led me to think. We are not in business to the best looking images we can that are artistically designed to best tell the story if the feature films, documentaries and to make his company.

Lighting in the film was always two purposes, to be able to see the subject and paint "it is not in the best possible light 'Just because our new cameras are fantastic, that you do not have a scene in the situation. It does not mean that we do not come to light to illuminate it better and more professional.

So we go back to basics and have guide for beginners Three-point lighting. It's simple and it works and it is worth considering if you want to give your video certain quality.

So where the skill stick is is lit in just three? The main thing is to think about how these lights in brightness and contrast intensity. It could be that you require your movie harsh shadows, so you want that you do not want a fill light should be, but this is still a conscious decision not to fill-light, so that you can still be 3-point lighting . Playing around with these three lights will allow you to paint with light, and create much, much better film.

From this point you can go on. Prop lights in the shot that also add to the illumination of the scene you can think of 'practical' and backlighting that helps you to see not only what the background but also certain color, shape and depth at the subject. And much, much more there. Especially in the lighting department credits on movie you are looking for an idea of how many people are really in it for the big screen" part.

If you have found, sorted the basics, then you can think about color correction and correction. We are artists creating beautiful images and the whole point of our abilities, that their effect, without notice would be appreciated. Let us not forget that lighting, together with sound, is the most important aspect of filmmaking. It allows us to paint in this modern medium, and keeps us under control, but demanding the technology.
