Hi there, I'm looking for "the best resource" - Book and/or DVD that can help me light my scenes. I'm planning to shoot some short stories - on 16mm and 35mm film. I need the images to come out as best as possible. We all know lighting is everything.

Can anyone out there makes some suggestions?

Set Lighting Technician's Handbook by Harry C. Box is the indie's bible for the technical side of lighting. I don't have any creative recommendations. I'm sure someone else can help on that.
