Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"You get all the basics in this book, including a very comprehensive overview of what is out there in lighting, but they go way beyond the basics, including how to survey a location simply to avoid problems cropping up later in the shoot...The other great thing I find very helpful in this book are all the practical tips of the trade that are regularly slipped into the text...There's a fund of really practical information here, in just 300 pages packed with first class photographs, clear diagrams and tables...Focal Press gives excellent value with this volume; it is a powerhouse of information on lighting for film, illuminating the nooks and crannies as well as painting the scene with flattering light." - www.shootingpeople.org


"A superb reference on lighting, Placing Shadows discusses virtually everything you need to know about lighting for video...A thorough lighting glossary, including examples, illustrations and a tips section completes this book. Anyone who uses video lights should take a look at Placing Shadows." - Charles Fulton, Videomaker

"Gloman and Letourneau have written an excellent introduction-to-lighting textbook for the novice videomaker...This book is very up to date, and includes newer lamps and fixtures. It gives the reader a solid background on the types of lighting units available, how they work, and how they are used. Anyone who did well in high school Science will find the technical aspects of this book easy to understand." - Bill Miller, Video Systems
