Basic Lighting and Grip Workshop

Nov. 2 & 3, 2012 - Tulsa, Oklahoma

 

Join award-winning photographer/filmmaker Todd Roberts in his Basic Lighting & Grip Workshop for video and still photography. This intensive, interactive workshop is designed for filmmakers, documentarians, corporate video producers and photographers who want to improve their knowledge of lighting with continuous-output instruments. We will not be using studio flash or speedlights.

The workshop is divided into two sessions. 

Session One - Friday, November 2, 6pm - 10pm

Session One will cover principles of light used in everyday production situations. We will focus on lighting faces for an interview, presentation, portrait or dramatic situation.

Topics include:

  • Inverse square law of light
  • Angle of reflectance equals angle of incidence
  • Creating light and shadow
  • Broad light and short light
  • Lighting foreground, subject and background
  • Color temperature and correction
  • Mixing ambient light
  • Intro to grip equipment

 

Session Two - Saturday, November 3, 8am - 4pm

In Session Two, participants will receive intensive hands on training with many different types of lights and light modifiers and see the effects of soft boxes, umbrellas, light panels, scrims, snoots, reflectors, gobos and barn doors. Weather permitting, we will also do some work outside.

Topics include:

  • Intro to lights and lighting control or modifiers
  • Rembrant lighting 
  • Three-point lighting
  • Beauty lighting
  • Clamshell lighting
  • Sports lighting
  • Hands-on experience in different situations (bulk of the session)
  • Homemade lighting (shop lights and flashlights)
