Location Lighting for Television is the first book of its kind to introduce the problems of location lighting for single camera operators and provides an insight into the technology and techniques required to solve these problems. The approach is of a basic and introductory nature, geared towards the student and trainee cameraman. Professionals looking for a refresher course on the subject will also find this an invaluable reference packed with key information, theory and practical approaches to different lighting situations.

This book is based on the experience of the author as a practitioner and trainer. Location lighting requires decisions to be made quickly, with rarely any opportunity to experiment. The aim in writing this book is to give an insight into how the problems can be solvd and the pitfalls avoided!
