In this short educational series, Litepanels will be looking at some core concepts around controlling and capturing light in digital cinematography. The film explores why consistent colour and contrast in your films is desirable, why the spectral power distribution (SPD) of LED lights is so important, why tungsten lights are the benchmark against which all other lights are compared, the history of the Colour Rendering Index and, finally, how to use the Rec.709 chromaticity references on common charts to gauge the colour rendering of your own LED fixtures at home.
During four sessions Kenchington will draw upon his professional work with high profile brands to share his methods for designing on-set lighting, that either achieve color harmony, color contrast or complete neutrality, specifically focusing on his experience using Litepanels’ Gemini. He will also explore the purposes of using particular lighting techniques, whether it’s to create depth, create clarity, or faithfully represent a client’s product on screen.
