Workshop teaches the essence of Creative Process through exploration of technical and artistic elements of cinematic expression in Film and Video.

light. Students light with Light Meter and once lighting is done Camera and Monitor are switched On and resulting image compared to that of the mind
image. Dancing with Light  Technique guarantees exact match between both, thus eliminating necessity of "creating" the Look in the Post .... $ (?).

lighting from Mind Image wth light meter.
