      Comments about First Light Video DVD: The Power of Lighting for Film & Video by Bill Holshevnikoff:

      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!

      Color Correction -
      Great DVD! Bill knows his craft. This video could be beneficial to a beginner but it will surely be an asset to a professional. I've been in the entertainment biz for over 10 years (Emmy Nominated) and Bill pointed out some obvious techniques that I have never put into practice. I will now! What I learned was well worth the cost.

      Lighting Interviews -
      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.

      Lighting Backgrounds -
      Key and Fill are pretty basic concepts (and typically an even exposure is only your goal) but the way your background is lit can set the mood of your content more than any other lighting position. Bill covers some techniques I've never put into practice (until now). Great content for a beginner or pro!

      Lighting Faces -
      The techniques for lighting individuals with a dark complexion was worth 10X's the price of the DVD! The new tricks I learned about eyeglass were useful, too. Excellent education for the price!
