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?
