The much-anticipated new edition of Blain Brown's lighting book is here! Brown is the author of the film industry bible, 'Cinematography: Image Making for Cinematographers, Directors, and Videographers' (2002). The second edition of 'Motion Picture and Video Lighting' is the companion work. Lighting is at the heart of filmmaking. The image, the mood, and the visual impact of a film are, to a great extent, determined by the skill and sensitivity of the cameraman, director of photography, and gaffer. 'Motion Picture and Video Lighting' explores technical, aesthetic, and practical aspects of lighting for film and video. It covers not only how to light, but why. Written by an experienced professional, this comprehensive book explores light and color theory; equipment, and techniques to make every scene look its best. The new edition has been completely updated to cover new techniques for lighting for digital video and high definition cameras.
