Training Your Eye - Lighting for Cinematographers. By Shane Hurlbut, ASC (6 Videos)

Training Your Eye - Lighting for Cinematographers. By Shane Hurlbut, ASC (6 Videos) | VideoPro |

"Many of you have heard me talk about how I light to eye by either looking at the back LCD screen or a  lighting monitor like an HP DreamColor. Lighting to eye is something that is based on experience and what you like esthetically. I trained my eye through the use of exposing film, not an LCD screen or a monitor, but a photo-chemical process and by the use of a light meter. Many say that the light meter is dead with digital. I disagree. It is the only tool that you have in your box that can measure what you love. It can tell you how you lit a specific scene in case you have to go back and pick something up later in your schedule. You will need that tool to measure footcandles and f-stops to guide you to make the match perfect."
