Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying what you've learned to your own productions, part of Lighting Design for Video Productions.
…Light is our color palette.…With it, we create mood, modify shapes, and highlight textures.…We can enhance or exaggerate an actor's…physical features, direct the viewers attention to…relevant details or objects, and establish a time of day or a sense of space.…As you might recall, using available window…light for a kitchen scene presented several challenges.…Including pushing our camera's technical limitations.…By artificially mimicking natural light we had the freedom to work over…several hours, stop worrying about the…weather forecast, and maintain continuity between shots.…
The best part is that now we can easily replicate the same…exact look at any time of the day, and many weeks later.…We showed that by simply switching one light, we turned…the living room into a library.…And a friendly chap into a not so friendly character.…Continuity doesn't only apply to a script and props.…It also has a lot to do with how different scenes, shot…at different times, and even different locations match a well defined look.…
