NAB New York: One Day to Better Lighting

If you are new to shooting video, then attending the NAB NY training Workshop: Small-To-No-Crew: Cinematic Video Lighting may be your door to better imagery.

If you are a novice videographer attending NAB New York this year, one of the best days to spend at the show is in a workshop on small to no-crew lighting. Video is made up of three parts: lighting, composition and camera movement. For most newcomers, lighting is the most difficult to master (but all three must work together as a cohesive whole). This workshop can solve that problem.

On Wednesday, Oct. 17, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Jem Schofield of theC47 and other guest instructors will take attendees through a how-to class on lighting for documentary, in-house and corporate based projects. This one-day field workshop explains the process of planning and lighting using largely low-key, cinematic techniques.

The class will feature lighting, lighting control, composition and camera set-ups to teach users how to illuminate a wide range of projects. It will also discuss and demonstrate certain "rules" that can be followed to help videographers consistently shoot excellent looking and natural one and two camera interviews.
