A great source for anyone seeking information on lighting - 'Let There Be Light' The video begins with a historical review of the origins of cinema lighting. Next - some background on the physics of light and color - and how these facts relate to the choices we make as cinematographers and photographers. The video concludes with a montage of modern lighting instruments and then a quick summation. - Mark Vargo, ASC
