Join Anthony Q. Artis for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with lighting instruments, part of Foundations of Video: Cameras and Shooting.
Lighting instruments come in all shapes, sizes, and budget levels from large professional…film lights that cost thousands of dollars to simple household units that cost less than $20.…But believe it or not, either can be just the right light to make your scene shine.…It's not about the instrument, but it's about the effect that it has on your scene.…So now I'm going to just run through a list of the most common types of lighting instruments…and accessories that you'll want to do just about any kind of lighting setup.…So let's start with the different types of lights starting with the Fresnel light right here.…
So right here I have a Fresnel light, so these are lights that have special focusable glass…lenses that make the light more concentrated and also a little softer than without the Fresnel lens.…Using a knob in the back, the light beam can be focused into a narrow spotted or broader flooded beam.…Next to that we have the open-face light.…Open-face lights don't have a glass lens in the front like the Fresnels.…
