IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  What separates a Master Cinematographer from a good one?  I ask you this question because are we not all on that road to become the best that we can be?  The Hurlbut Academy is an extension of Lydia’s and my vision, passion, drive, and aspirations.  Signing up you already have seen the passion and dedication, now it is your turn to live, breathe, and love the art of visual storytelling.

This lesson in not only understanding light quality, but also light levels and color temperature shifts when using each diffusion.  This is a test that I would have died to have access to when I was starting out, but with the Hurlbut Academy it is delivered for all of you to ingest and find your own path and style.
