          This DVD is a good reference for light for interviews. Show different techniques for light in situations like set light for someone with glases. Also show ratios for key light and fill light.The cons is the video look little outdated...

            I knew most of the inforamtion presented, but I learned a couple of very useful tricks for lighting black skin, bald heads, and glasses. It is better than some other videos on lighting, and the tricks I listed aren't in other videos. Although, I find Barry Green's videos on light and sound to be the best, so far.

                If you purchase the Lighting Faces DVD and regard it as a training exercise you are more likely to forgive the less than perfect quality of the production. If your intent is to learn about lighting faces, the DVD is a worthwhile purchase and a good investment in your increasing knowledge of lighing. I particuarly liked the inclusion of handling lighting of spectacles and black skin. As a stills photographer the DVD is valuable library addition.

                  Comments about Chimera DVD: Lighting Faces, Volume 1:

                  I've bought essentially all the DVD training (for lighting) available on B&H and this is the BEST (and it was produced in the mid-90'S)! Everything is still relevant!

                  Best DVD of the series. I've shot a lot of interviews myself and I'm sure my career will include many, many more. I knew a fair share of what was covered but the new techniques I picked up on have already been incorporated into the recent content I've been producing (with positive feedback from clients). What it comes down to is: if you put your education into practice, it should earn you well over the cost.
