While I know most of you aren't videographers, I also know the lines are getting thinner and thinner between the specialties in imaging. So often, as photographers, you're in situations where you're expected to be the expert on imaging, regardless of what your core skill set or specialty might be.
Well, it's "Wednesdays with Westcott," and I love the way Caleb Wojcik teaches. The video is only four minutes, but he's going to take you through a mini-workshop on lighting - all while inside a food truck, with minimal room!
I'm reminded of a segment of education in still photography that David Ziser used to teach called "Big Church Little Church," and David talked about understanding your lenses. Shooting with the right lens changed the perspective on the size of the church. Caleb's presentation below takes you through the importance of lighting the right way for video and all while crammed into a tiny space.
Watch this short video, and you'll see how effective he is in controlling only the light he wants to create the final video. Again, while I know most of you aren't filmmakers, you need to step out of your comfort zone. You need to understand and explore how to maximize the quality of everything you shoot.
