Stage Lighting Design: A Practical Guide 2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

this book is better for someone who already has a large amount of experience in the field of lighting design and technical theater. there are many excersizes that an expereinced theater veteran might find interesting but someone who is just starting out might find confusing. some of the excersizes include designing for several plays, including Shakespeare's Hamlet. if you are looking for a basic understanding of how lighting design works for many types of shows, unfortunately this is not your book. the language and layout are very text book like. on occasion the book talks about colors you could use to create different looks such as sunrise or storm. while some of the pictures are in color, most are in black and white. as a theater technician myself, using color photos when talking about color is extremely important. personally, if i had more experience i would have snapped this book right up. overall, dissapointing.
