Here's a link from cinematography.com -- their 'best of' list.

--> http://astore.amazon.com/cinematographyco

I'd recommend "Lighting" by Blain Brown. Excellent overview of the whole subject, a great nuts n bolts read about the technology, the tools, and strategies, with diagrams and examples. Includes a DVD illustrating the key concepts as well. Great book.

His other book "Cinematography" is another excellent resource -- very current and includes many chapters regarding shooting digital.

The lighting forum (all the forums, actually) on cinematography.com is always full of good info, often from seasoned veterans. Throw any specific questions you might have out on there and you're sure to get helpful replies.

Hope this helps out. Like Tess mentioned though, the best teacher is practice and the confidence that comes with knowing your tools.


Rugged yet hygienic.
