Cinematic Lighting with Shane Hurlbut, ASC: Xenon Light
In this video, cinematographer Shane Hurlbut, ASC shines the laser-strong Xenon through the backside of a 1-inch foam bead board that yields an impressive light quality. Then, when they add fill light with a 4×8 Pipelight, the entire lighting setup comes together beautifully.
Showcasing the soft light quality of the Xenon light, Shane shines a light on some useful techniques like how he and his team dealt with its 5600 Kelvin daylight balance by adding a full CTO to keep their cameras all at 3200 Kelvin.
This is but one segment from the all-new Cinematic Light Quality Masterclass presented by Shane Hurlbut, ASC and Filmmakers Academy.
Cinematographers build successful careers based on their ability to harness and control light. Such lighting methods become your signature calling card and make you extraordinarily marketable.
