The Technique of Lighting for Television and Motion Pictures.
Millerson, Gerald
The aim of this book is to enable everyone working with light in photography, cinematography, and television to build a methodical, rational foundation for techniques from which personal creativity can grow. Fundamentals about the nature of light are explored in a first chapter, and similarities and differences between the eye and the camera in perceiving the visual world are discussed in the second chapter. Subsequent chapters detail basic principles of lighting, tools of lighting, portrait and still-life photography, persuasive lighting, lighting scenes, motion picture and television techniques, effects, and picture control. Photographs and drawings are provided throughout as examples or illustrations of the procedures and concepts discussed. (RH)
