The Language of Light - Volume 2
In this edition, the video camera floats through the action as a shot comes together, capturing the musings, conversations, and the never ending adjustments of location shooting. It’s not as nuts and bolts as the first edition, and it takes the tools and lessons of The Language of Light Volume One into much more complex realms of using speedlights (and some big strobes) to good effect on location.
Understand how to control the ambient light, back light, and capture the feel of fluid motion in a smoky, drama filled theatre
Why wait for the sun to cooperate, when you can create your own ”sun” using four speedlights outside a window?
Construct an elaborate rooftop lighting scenario using 14 small flashes to showcase a beautiful ballerina placed in the midst of urban architecture.
Explore a technique known as "hi-speed sync" to gain control in an otherwise difficult exposure.
Learn how to work with a fading sky and turn it into a vivid sunset, all while playing with color and motion blur.
Discover a technique known as "flash and blur," where we use big strobes and continuous lights to illustrate and freeze the speed of movement.
