I am the camera operator for the past 2 years in India. I used mostly Sony EX3 Cameras.
I am in the process of developing myself as DP. First, I decided to learn about the lighting techniques. I started reading books about lighting. Theoretically, I have the knowledge of exposure, light meter, lighting equipment, other good stuffs.
But practically, I am not comfortable doing the lighting.
For one of the recent Bollywood projects, I will be coming to LA this summer. Is there a place in LA I can learn the lighting techniques like a hands-on seminar? I will be staying in LA for 5 weeks. I will have 2 weeks for myself other than the shooting time.
I know lighting comes by experience. But if I have a good foundation, I can develop myself better on the ongoing projects.
Can anyone suggest any place or any other way (like DVD that shows how to light)?
Thanks for all of your time.
