Beyond Three Point Lighting - A Personal View By A Lighting Director
We are delighted that Iain Davidson (Lighting Director for Thronecast & the Ryder Cup) will be joining us for an exclusive workshop on lighting held here at ProAV. Iain will take attendee's through his concepts on lighting, from the qualities he looks for in a key light, to working with natural light. He also will guide us through his approach to studio based multi-camera shoots like Thronecast, how to get the best results and what you need to consider when designing the lighting.
This is a fantastic chance to develop your skills in lighting for all kinds of video production.
