Cool course! Just finished it. Curious to know if the fresnels were in the spot position or somewhere in the middle between spot and flood.

Dear Shane , Very Awesome Contents , Waiting for more surprises other (genera) next few months. just as I conclude you were always to sell the genera trying to light her with indirect way such as back light, bounce light 6 days ago

Great lessons and shadows are so well done. This course brought me a lot of answers for the new short film that I will shoot in a few weeks. A short film about the life and trial of a witch in Scotland in the 16th century. But unfortunately we will not using 4K lighting because of the budget anyway we will find a way to work and create an approximate atmosphere with our lightings as we are shooting interior and exterior. Thank you Shane.

    • Shane Hurlbut, ASC    5 days ago Hi, You are very welcome my friend. You can do it with M18's or tungsten fresnels that are cheaper. 4K fresnels are very cheap now because everyone is using the Arri M series and the rental houses have to blow the dust off of them. HA AH
