Module 3: Lighting (Pt.2) Three-Point Lighting and More

Beyond Three Point Lighting Let's review the animation from the Introductory course. Focus on the c-stand, the background light, and the hair light. Not seen in the animation, but an important fact, is that eye lights are utilized on actors with brown or dark iris' to bring those eye colors to life. This is the reason why so many Hollywood actors have blue or light green eyes because the lighter eye colors pop on camera and need no added light source to come to life.

How we sculpt light that gives our images meaning, depth and interest. Many people make their videos light up everything

Module 2: Lighting (Pt.1) Color Theory

Primary Colors and Complementaries If a red light, blue light, and green light all shine on the same spot, the spot will appear white. You can think of white light as made up of these three colors, called additive primaries, and expressed as: red + blue + green = white Red and blue light together yield a purple-red color called magenta. Blue and green light produce a green-blue color called cyan, and red and greed together produce yellow. red + blue = magenta blue + green = cyan red + green = yellow Cyan, magenta, and yellow are subtractive primaries: created by subtracting one of the additive primaries from white light: For example, if the red component is taken away from white light, cyan (blue + green) is left: cyan = blue + green +

Module 4: Lighting (Pt. 2) : Three Point Lighting

Learning which type of lighting works best for you is extremely important for looking skilled and professional on-screen. When it comes to using sunlight, the most desirable time to film is at 4 pm, also known as the Golden Hour. Unfortunately, this time frame is not always the most realistic for our busy lives. Although we can still use the sunshine to our advantage, it may be necessary to use three-point lighting to help control the shadows and highlights on your face. Three-Point Lighting is a commonly used technique to simulate natural lighting and make you appear skilled and professional on-screen. This type of lighting utilizes three separate light sources: Key Light: The principal light source. It should shine directly on you/your subject and is the brightest and most notable. Fill Light: A softer, less bright light shining from

Module 3: Lighting (Pt. 1): Color Temperature

Lighting usually falls within two main color temperatures:  Tungsten and daylight. Tungsten is indoor lighting and produces a warm color with yellow and orange undertones. Its temperature is between about 2000 Kelvin (K) and 3400 K. Incandescent light, or a conventional light bulb is a tungsten, which is why photographs made indoors often have a yellow cast. Daylight is a brighter light source at 5600K, producing a cool, or blue-toned color cast. Photographs made outdoors often reveal this blue cast caused by sunlight temperatures of more than 5000K.   Figure 3.0 Color Temperature Chart   Figure v3.0 Color Temperature Animation
