IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  Lighting Urban Night Exterior with Street lights is what this lesson is all about along with some other Golden Nugget scenes that I breakdown for you.  Controlling street lights can be impossible sometimes, I go through the process of how I shape each one along a walk and talk.  What color temp do I set my camera at, which other lights do I use to create color contrast, what Bokeh lights can do for your scenes depth?  We breakdown how you can turn a Mini van into a camera car and how to light a scene with just a laptop.

  • Dealing with another technical disaster and what was the solution
  • What you need to transform your mini van into a camera car
  • How I shaped Street lights so the scene was not flat
  • What other lights I use to create depth and color contrast
