Hey guys

 

I was looking into buying a book (well, videos would be better) that is up to date with digital technology and teaches creative ways to light a scene for film. Ideally, not only lighting but other components such as lens and filters choices, hazers, gels, etc. I'm not really interested in film stock oriented teaching, as most of my work is digital.

 

I'm mostly talking about lighting for a specific look and mood, not really three point lighting and other basic stuff of the sort. 

 

Thanks!

Check out Matters of Light and Depth by Ross Lowell.

 

As an aside, the decisions behind lighting has really changed much for decades, only the tools have. I would focus on learning about why cinematographers, painters, and photographers chose to light a scene rather than how. How it's done will always change with technology, but the artistic reason is timeless.
