Quick change lighting tips'Quick Change' Lighting: Includes 9 Tips for the Time-Saving Technique
by Paolo Dy

When shooting different scenes in the same general area, do not just think about current setup; also consider how you will light the next scene, and perhaps the scene after that. See if you can position your lights (particularly any huge scaffold-mounted HMIs that you're using) so that there will be the least amount of time and effort needed to move to the next setup.

M. David Mullen, ASC"There Is No Such Thing As Video Lighting" by
M. David Mullen, ASC

Learning to light is one of the biggest challenges for the beginning filmmaker and involves developing three separate skills: (1) the ability to see, to be sensitive to the artistic possibilities of natural light and available artificial illumination; (2) the ability to imagine how lighting can transform a location or set; and (3) the ability to tell a story in images.
