By | Uncategorized | No Comments

On February 22nd, D2’s very own Mike Hennessey presented a workshop entitled Interview Lighting 101 as part of Rule Boston Camera‘s Learning Lab Series.  In this presentation, Mike covers hard/soft light and color temp, the pros and cons of current lighting and grip equipment, quality of light, power consumption, heat, versatility of instruments, plus tools on how to shape light with flags and black wrap.  Additionally, Mike takes a very detailed look at three point lighting – proper placement of key, fill, and back lights and customizing them for different subjects based on their coloring and hair style. Mike delves into lighting with popular backgrounds (black, white, grey, green screen, muslin) and how best to choose and light a background in an existing space.

Due to high demand, an overflow room needed to be setup to accommodate everyone.
