LIGHTING forDIGITAL VIDEO & TELEVISION
Reviewers’ comments about the previous edition
"This is the most up-to-date and comprehensive book on lighting techniques for TV that I couldﬁnd. Jackman writes with a wry sense of humor and at a technical level that is easy to digest.…Not only does he tell you how to light a particular scene, he details the psychological and techni-cal reasons behind his decisions. From simple three-point lighting to extensive studio shoots …it's all in here in an easy-to-read format."
—Bill Miller, March 2003, Video Systems
“A real page-turner... helps us to light our DV dynamically and artistically. Often the book showsmore thrifty workarounds for expensive concepts….”
—Stephen Szpak, www.amazon.com review
“The strongest part of the book is the way Jackman gives an example of a problem and then goesinto an explanation of the science or mathematics that will be used to solve the problem….“Reading Lighting for Digital Video & Television and committing it to memory may not fasttrack one to a position of lighting director in Hollywood, but it would be a reasonable place tostart.”
