Learn to Improve your Lighting Skills with LinkedIn Learning

Improve your videos and images with something not often talked about: lighting!

Learning Path: Improve Your Lighting Skills

Being a video professional means getting a professional look on your shoots, and good lighting can make or break the quality of your shots. The courses in this path cover a range of lighting situations that video creators will need to master to take their work to the next level.

Video: Lighting the Scene

Lighting is essential for adding texture and illuminating the details in your cinematic project.

Course: Learn Video Lighting

In any shooting situation, the existing lighting is rarely perfect as-is, especially for photographing people in a flattering way. Knowing how to control the available light, and add additional light, is key to ensuring your subject looks as good as possible on video.

Course: Cinematic Video Lighting

There's no reason to fall back on the same old 3-point lighting techniques for every shoot. Cinematic lighting, which takes its cue from film, can add drama and visual interest to any production. Learn how with this course.

Skillsoft engages learners with interactive courses, enlightening videos, digital books, and practical simulations. Enjoy. Access Skillsoft with your Cornell NetID and password.
