Chiaroscuro Lighting
South Bay Newport Beach, California

Small groups. Limited to five students.

Workshop teaches the essence of Technical and Creative aspects of cinematic expression in Film and Video
Being able to light without help of monitor enables one to engage in true nature of creative process where  creativity relates to execution of  "mind
image" conceived prior to entering the floor. This workshop is about realization of Dramatic Film Look in Video through demonstration and hands-on
with camera and light. Students light with Light meter with Camera and Monitor switched off.  
Once Lighting is done Camera and Monitor are switched on and result compared to that of the mind image. Dancing with Light  technique
guarantees exact match between both. Workshop teaches the essence of Technical and Artistic aspects of cinematic expression.
Main Areas of concentration:    
Film Look    Dancing with Light    Cinematic Expression
