CSC Workshop

Workshop: Lighting (TableTop)

The CSC has created this course to handle the cinematographic lighting techniques specific to "small/confined" areas. The term "table top" is commonly used to describe such areas, even when there is no table in the scene, and the area may even be somewhat larger than a typical table.

During this workshop, discussions and exercises will be limited to an area that fulfills this understanding of a "table top".


Instruction will include:
      - the psychological approach to advertising of products
            either stationary or while being used.
      - Understanding the approach to specifics products
            and how best to photograph them.
      - Learn about the various lighting instruments required
            for this kind of application.
      - How to evaluate the special requirements, both aesthetically
            as well as technically to achieve the intended results.
      - How to apply special techniques and the methods for
            lighting a variety of products, surfaces and textures.

Not a basic workshop - prerequisite knowledge expected

Participants are required to a a good understanding and working knowledge of lighting techniques as in the CSC's Cinematic Lighting workshop.
