How to Light w/ Mixed Color Sources:The Ticket

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  5 Minutes of Movie clips to enhance instruction    –Supplied w/English Subtitles

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  What is mixed SOURCE LIGHTING?  I have always embraced urban night light tones on the streets, in hospitals, convenience stores, etc.   This lesson is all about what is required to deliver mixed source imagery and the thought process behind it.  Embracing different tones.   I dive deep into how I do this on many of my motion pictures so that you can immediately put this into practice and watch your imagery gain significant depth and dimension.

  • What color temp to set you camera at to deliver this
  • How to use a color temp meter, to match different source lights to then use Hollywood lights for control
  • WHY I love GREEN 
  • What Tools are required to create color contrast
