Great book

This book is awsome. It starts from very basic information such as the nature of light to delve into specific details. For example it talks about facial features and how light affects their appearance through shadows, etc. Another great feature is that it gives images of an object or a scene under different types of illumination. Then there are long captions that describe how the scene was illuminated in each picture and what the results are. It contains very practical information such as how to light a grand piano, or how to avoid camera shadows and other common errors. It also talks about the actual design and eventual execution of the lighting and about lighting instruments and their use in specific conditions. Tons of diagrams help understanding and each of them is carefully explained. This book will help anybody understand the concepts and then it will become their close companion as it contains many tables useful as reference on the set.

One of the best books on LIGHTING for film & television

I highly recommend this book to cinematography students wishing to learn about lighting technique and styles. Millerson has taken the trouble to explain a lot of cinematic lighting in detail with a lot of illustrations, charts, diagrams, etc.This book is a MUST HAVE if one is serious about knowing about film & video lighting. It is easy to understand & is quite well indexed for quick reference.
