He’s been capturing still images for over 25 years and even though he got into video only 5 years ago, you’ll find his award-winning and mind changing videos on National Geographic, Netflix, the BBC and many of his clients websites. It’s common to find him in the mountains of Afghanistan or the jungles of South America and it’s just as common to walk away from one of his short documentary style films with your mind blown.

Video Lighting Workshop Move2Motion

Move2Motion's workshop about video light sources

It’s all about the light

There are many components, that go into a successful motion shoot and as photographers the one we are most familiar with is the visual portion of video. We learn very quickly that we must master story telling, audio recording and editing as well, but we often take the visual crafting of an image for granted–until we turn on that first continuous light source and quickly realize, it has very little in common with the strobes we’re all used to.

Lighting plays a huge role in video as it does in photography - learn the basics of video lighting instrumentsGet to know your video lights

This Move2Motion Video Lighting workshop will focus on the most commonly used lighting instruments in video production.It’s not designed to teach you how to light–we’re assuming you already know how to do that.

  • Unsure of the difference between a open face par and a fresnel?
  • Want to learn more about why a tungsten light renders a much better color than LED?
  • Surprises that a fluorescent bulb can be have a color temperature of 3200ºK?
  • Wondering why an HMI needs to be flicker free?

Then this workshop is for you. Join us and get ready to learn some theory, basic terminology and a hands on comparison of a variety of different continuous light sources. Bring your gloves – ’cause the lights get hot and your color meter – you do still have that, right?

Move2Motion Video Lighting Workshop details:

We’re working on planning this workshop, but it will be held in Miami in the middle of October. Stay tuned for pricing info, exact time and location. Move2Motion is offering 3 events in October that will all focus on video productions for photographers:

  1. A panel discussion of photographers from different segments of our industry that talk about the role video plays in their space: commercial, advertising, weddings, press and corporate
  2. A seminar for photographers that want to make video. Better. This is part of PPA’s Super1Day educational series. The cost for this seminar is $99. All payments will be handled via PPA signup.
  3. Video Lighting Workshop – a workshop that gives you a hands on experience of continuous light sources used in video productions.

A huge shout out to our friends at Magic2Lighting, who are supplying the bulk of lighting and grip gear for this workshop. Special Thanks to BlueShape Batteries that are going to power all the portable lights. Stay tuned for more sponsors and event details.
