I've attended four years of film school, but never got a thorough technical training. I have shot with an Arri SR2, Bolex, Eclair and Aaton Minima, I know the basics about film stock and light, but do not feel that I completely dominate the whole affair. I have worked alot with DV, a little with Beta SP, but still find there are things I don't know, when working alongside a real video buff. Plus, I have never really done the lighting myself.
I am looking for some books to give me a sound theoretic background on film photography and video, as well as lighting. I don't need a basic introduction, or books on visual language like "shot by shot". What I am looking for is the technical background.
As there are so many books around, can anyone recommend something?
Are the Maine workshops recommendable?
Is there anything comparable in Europe?
