          from The Video Whisperer Added 53 0 0

          http://thevideowhisperer.wordpress.com Lighting for Video That Doesn't Suck, Getting Started, is a the first in a series of practical tutorials on the subject of 3 point lighting that starts with the core fundamentals not generally covered in similar tutorials. The rest of the series will cover practical lighting for video starting with the theoretical basics of lighting and kit, then proceed into practical applications and short cuts in the "real world". The purpose is to give videographers a conceptual understanding of lighting in a way that they will then be able to easily and vastly improve the quality of their videos with little cost. This is not a dictatorial tutorial series, but one which consults your own understanding and encourages clever and innovative applications that result video quality that surpasses most of what is out there. By subscribing to the Video Whisperer You Tube Channel (link above) you can be alerted to releases of the rest of the series as they come.

          • Lighting for Video in HD / An In Depth Documentary


            from Maximilian Vartanian Added 17.5K 133 26

            This documentary is an informative look into lighting for your videos on a low/no budget project. This documentary is hosted by your man, Maximilian Vartanian. I put this together for my final project in grade 12 University Communication Technology. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy making this, but I actually learned quite a few things that I didn't know before I jumped into this project. I should mention that in this video I suck at playing the guitar. To support my ego I'm going to go ahead and say that I'm better now. Done. If you like this video, please check out my most recent short film: https://vimeo.com/maxvartanian/kapleau Any tips made to the jar helps fund projects such as this. If you found that it helped out in anyway, please consider tipping. Thank you.
