SIC Podcast Ep.4

SIC Podcast Ep.4 is now available on iTunes and YouTube!

In this podcast, we really wanted to focus on the importance of lighting. If you want to rise up the ranks as a director of photography, you need to learn the principles of what makes good and bad lighting. For me, nothing excites more than crafting the mood and story with light. The directors have their actors and the DPs have their lights.

Some of the questions we’ll be answering are:

  • How to achieve color separation on skin tones and mixing various color lights.
  • Understanding the low light capabilities in a digital sensor like the Sony A7s.
  • How shaping light can create the emotion and meaning of the scene.
  • Taking the time to adequately prepare yourself for each unique location.
  • Things that you’ll need to consider when running a generator and using bigger lights.
  • Figuring out how to execute day-4-night and maintaining a realistic quality.
  • The importance of a light meter and its functionality on set.
  • Breaking down scenes for “Need for Speed” and why I orchestrate those lighting setups.
  • Understanding the steps for dialing in the right color temperature for the scene.
  • Knowing what to look for when renting/purchasing LED light fixtures.

Lighting isn’t something you’ll learn by just reading books and watching tutorials online. I hope that this podcast helps demystify some of the lies you’ll find floating around the internet. What we want is for you to get out there and try these methods for yourself!

If you have questions, head over the Shane’s Inner Circle and submit them today. To do so, you’ll need to be a member of our online community. So join up if you haven’t already!
