Lighting car interiors at night. How I light, what choices I make with specific units, and why one lighting tool is selected over another.
How to read a color temp meter and why it is important. I have always loved understanding the color of different lights — street lights, fluorescents in a store, neon, moonlight, etc.
The light meter is essential for matching and to get your head around light ratios as a young cinematographer.
A few weeks ago, I shot a run and gun style web series and the generous team over at Hive Lighting gave me one of their units to demo. Plasma light technology is pretty incredible.
When you have a small team to tell your story, you need to find lights that do many things and provide many color temps. You need some that can focus and ones that are a broad source.
