More than Three Lights. China Ball. Geraldine Winters. Special thanks to the producers. I really wrote this for and because of them. I dedicate this book to my wonderful wife. And to my younger daughter Alexandra Landau.

Shooting under available light gives exposure. Well-crafted lighting helps establish the illusion of reality that is necessary for viewers to forget they are watching a screen and to get lost in the story.

This book will help the reader create lighting that supports the emotional moment of the scene. Good lighting makes things look real.

The story could be the greatest in the world. So the lighting techniques in this book can be just as useful for all types of productions and not just ones telling narrative fictional tales. Having worked in the lighting business on everything from corporate videos and documentaries to commercials. I have been fortunate to be able to observe and learn from a wide variety of talented cinematographers.

As this book is geared toward cinematographers just starting out. I know how the lights were set up. These are not being offered for praise or for bragging rights. Good Lighting Is What Sells the Picture oriented more toward lighting setups applicable to location shooting. The techniques here are equally applicable for both studio lighting and location lighting. I have used stills from low. The fallacy in this thinking is the simple fact that the human eye is a thousand times more sensitive than any HD camera or film stock.

I give fair warning that the majority of stills are from a variety of low-budget projects I lit myself and some from the work of my students. What I relate in this book comes from my 35 years working on lighting crews as an electrician.

I will not delve too far into how major feature films are lit. Each instance is different. In recent years.

Feature films and TV shows. Not all lighting setups take a lot of instruments or a lot of time. I have also endeavored to supply lighting diagrams for many setups to better illustrate how the lighting was accomplished. Without lighting.

No camera can duplicate that. Often they incorrectly assume that by shooting under available light or with as little light as possible. Light is also an international. Light is an emotional language—it evokes a common response by all who see it.

What is light? What can we do with it? What can it do for us when we are photographing moving images? Light is life-giving. It is radiant energy that is all around us and is taken for granted. How we light something is the mechanical craft.

They can record an image under almost any form of available light. Cinematography is the art and science of recording moving images. That means a picture with a defined contrast.

The human eye is attracted to whatever the brightest thing is in its view. Even with the most advanced Chapter 1: The Magic of Light: We can usually only accomplish this by judiciously adding some of our own lights. In other words. Our eyes register light through rods brightness on a gray scale and cones color values and transmit images to the brain.

Lighting allows film and video to record an image that approximates what the human eye sees. Without enough light. It can see details in the texture of the snow on a sun-drenched mountaintop. With the new highly sensitive sensors. We now have more ability to be selective in what we allow the viewer to see—selective in the brightness. Art directors will give the actress that is the star a more colorful.

A bright flash of light occurs off to one side and everyone looks at it. The human eye can see detail in the darkest shadows in a room with only a single candle. Lighting can do a lot. That burdensome. Yet none of them come anywhere close to what our rods and cones can detect. While a lot of things can be done to the image in digital postproduction.

Magicians use this to their advantage all the time.

By using this selectivity. But we need to consider the following. Keeping in mind that the human eye will always be attracted to the brightest thing in the frame.

Robinson—as the viewer always does.

DPs do this with lighting. Good lighting renders an illusion of three-dimensionality to a flat screen. Lighting suggests a belief in the reality of what is on the screen.

We must be consistent to maintain believability.

Robinson are in the study having a drink. Lighting provides logic. And believability is key to getting the audience to suspend disbelief and become involved in the story. Lighting utilizes light. Chapter 1: The Magic of Light costume than the characters surrounding her. Lighting does this by providing modeling and depth to an otherwise flat image. The light seems to be coming from natural or logical sources.

When this happens. We want them to become so engrossed in the story that they feel like they are in the picture themselves.

The lighting and composition direct the attention of the viewer exactly where the director. In order to avoid this. The mind rejects pictures that are false and confusing. This causes the viewer to separate from the story and examine the image as an image. The same scene. White light is composed of all the colors of the spectrum equally mixed. Lighting allows the viewer to feel the emotional thrust of the image.

Why is this important for us to know? Light can be reflected bounced. Except we have to be aware of how fast the light decreases as we move the light away.

Each scene has a mood or atmosphere. While much of this is done with blocking and camera framing. The least we can do is give them something they enjoy looking at. The closer the light. We also must keep in mind that the spread of the light will also vary as we move the light closer and farther away.

These are all parts of the physics of light. Dark shadows can create a feeling of loneliness. We call this the inverse square law. So we must compose the scene.

Understanding how we can utilize and manipulate these aspects of light allows us more control. In plain English. We are asking viewers to watch something we have created. As it spreads. We live in a visual world and it leaves emotional imprints from visual scenarios. Light is a certain bandwidth of radiant energy that we can see. The farther away the light.

Behind the lamp in each fixture is a reflector that bounces light back out the front of the unit. We can do the same thing with a 2.

The important thing to remember here is that all light bounces. We can direct it. If we are trying to make it look like sunlight is coming in through a window. This is done by sending the light through a lens that bends and focuses the light rays into a tighter beam and out in a straighter line. How can we use this? This is good to know because it means that the light will drop in intensity and usually change color slightly.

In addition. The viewer may not consciously know why. It is also important to realize that sunlight bounces off the sky and off of clouds.

This means that if you have an actress in a long. Why is this important to know? Because if we are shooting someone in the snow. Green light bounces up off of a green lawn. The beam of light from a lighting unit with a lens is more intense and thus travels farther before falling off.
