This weekly course covers the most common questions videographers encounter when shooting and editing with DSLR cameras, from choosing a frame size and frame rate to understanding moiré. Authors Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman will also help you understand the impacts of compression and the difference between cropped (or micro 4/3rds) and full-sized sensors in cameras, and much more. This continual FAQ guide is a handy way to find the answers to the questions that plague you the most.
Male 1: When you're shooting for multiple cameras, lighting becomes a bit of a challenge because you have to really accommodate a couple of goals. One, the light has to look good from pretty much each direction. So to pull this off, we've been trying different styles of lighting. We've already used the practical lights that were installed here. So we're using what was in the environment itself. And they're stage lights because we're on a stage. This gave us some cool things, like Christmas tree lights overhead, and we have some soft twinkling lights and then we had to work with what was around. We made sure that the windows were blocked off, but to put some backlight behind the subject, we've got some LEDs, shooting upwards.
Beyond this, Jim Ball, our director of photography, he really went through and decided where he was going to place his lights to give good overall coverage. So, let's hear some of his thoughts on the lighting approach.
