By: Landau, David, 1956- [aut]Material type: TextTextLanguage: English Publisher: London : Bloomsbury, 2014Publisher: London : Bloomsbury, 2014Description: 275 pages illustrations (colour) 24 cmContent type: text | still image Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9781628922981; 1628922982; 9781628926927; 1628926929Subject(s): Cinematography -- Lighting | Ljussättning, handbok | Cinematography -- Lighting | LightingDDC classification: 777 Summary: "We can't shoot good pictures without good lighting, no matter how good the newest cameras are. Shooting under available light gives exposure, but lacks depth, contrast, contour, atmosphere and often separation. The story could be the greatest in the world, but if the lighting is poor viewers will assume it's amateurish and not take it seriously. Feature films and TV shows, commercials and industrial videos, reality TV and documentaries, even event and wedding videos tell stories. Good lighting can make them look real, while real lighting often makes them look fake.Lighting for Cinematography, the first volume in the new CineTech Guides to the Film Crafts, is the indispensable guide for film and video lighting. Written by veteran gaffer and cinematographer David Landau, the book helps the reader create lighting that supports the emotional moment of the scene, contributes to the atmosphere of the story and can augment an artistic style. Structured to mimic a 14 week semester, the chapters cover such things as lighting for movement, working with windows, night lighting, lighting the three plains of action and non-fiction lighting. Every chapter includes stills, lighting diagrams and key advice from professionals in the field, as well as lighting exercises for the reader to put into practice what was covered"-- Provided by publisher.
