Video Lighting on Location: How to Use Shadows

As a filmmaker, you know
how important it is to get your lighting right, but this can only really come
from a good understanding of how light works. Knowing what you want to achieve
is half the battle.

When working with available light, shadows can be just as
difficult as full sunshine. When an object casts a shadow on your subject,
the temptation is to move; but sometimes, we can use it to our advantage. In
this lesson, we’ll look at creative effects we can use with shadow – even when
they aren’t actually there!
