RocketJump Film School: Office Hours
Season 2015 - Episode 14

Follow Up: Harnessing the Sun

This week Lauren and Joey chat with director of photography Jon Salmon (VGHS, RocketJump: The Show) about the tutorial we did together, Harnessing the Sun:

We discuss where the idea for the tutorial came from, answer some of your questions, talk about what we’ve learned from recent shoots, how to deal with less than ideal lighting situations, learning how to light and expose for different skin tones and faces, and then wrap it up by sharing what we hope to cover in future lighting tutorials.

Have more questions for us and Jon? Chat with us directly in the forum:
