Grad Lab Workshop: Studio Lighting
Grad Lab, Lazarus Center, 5th Floor
This workshop will serve as an introduction to lighting concepts and practices, from basic lighting schemes to more scientific ideas like color temperature ad the use of gels. We will also discuss how lighting effects every aspect of your shot, from depth of field to shutter speed, and how tools like light meters aren't as outdated as you might think. If you have shot grainy, flat-looking images in the past and are looking to avoid that in the future, this will help.
