03. Lighting & Colour balance

As with photography, lighting is a key consideration when it comes to filmmaking.

In this class Karl looks at the different types of lighting that you can use and also the different styles and moods that it creates. He explains how you can use gels, hard and soft light, as well as different modifiers to create the desired light and emotion. He also talks about color balance and the Kelvin scale and the effect these can have on your clips.

In this DSLR movie making class we cover the following:

  • Film lighting techniques
  • LED lighting for filmmaking
  • Kelvin scale and color temperature
  • Setting white balance on DSLR camera

NOTE: This class is available with English subtitles

    1. Hi Martin, this is because the numbers actually are linked or related to temperature (kelvin) and as things like stars get hotter they glow red, yellow and then blue to white I believe. You might also find chapter 1 of LightSource in the portrait section useful as I explain about colour spectrum.
