Great interview lighting is essential to any production, but it doesn't have to be expensive. Regardless of your budget or what kind of camera you have, there's just no excuse for not shooting the kind of excellent looking interviews that you see on the best network news-magazine programs.

But, as you'll learn in this 60-minute DVD, good interview lighting doesn't require expensive equipment. You can shoot network quality interviews with a light kit that costs less than $1500  -- if you know what to buy and how to use it. "How to Setup, Light, & Shoot Great Looking Interviews" is a hands-on, practical guide for television and video camera operators of all abilities. It will teach you all the fundamentals and advanced techniques you need to know for lighting great looking interviews with nothing more than a basic light kit.

With 17 chapters of detailed explanations, examples, tutorials, and tips, this video demonstrates how to get great results -- without getting bogged down in jargon and unnecessary information. It will show you exactly what you need to have in your light kit, and then take you step-by-step through the process of choosing a location, setting up the lights, and solving common challenges in real-world situations -- NOT in a studio.

Do you shoot interviews using LED lights? If so, we have another DVD that may suit you better than this one.
