THE WORLD OF REFLECTED LIGHT, PART 13: THE CHARACTER OF REFLECTED LIGHT
Watch 13 part series at: https://tinyurl.com/3u8vpb7h It is not easy to define the virtues of the special character of the dedolight Lightstream system. One aspect would be that light in hard reflection is polarized and gives a different appearance to skin structure and skin tones, even when the color temperature is identical. But then, there is more to it that needs to be experienced by the eye of the seasoned DOP, or anybody who has the ability to 'see light'. Sounds like a joke, but it is absolutely true that even in our profession there are not many people that I have met who can see light. Most of us simply see the reflection of light and perceive that, but are not able to describe the character of light itself. Many people, however, who have started to work with the dedolight Lightstream system perceive the emotional impact of the employment of reflected light. This is definitely not a sure-fire way to create an emotional impact. If employed in the many possible creative ways it can be very beautiful, frightening, dramatic, gentle or unnoticeable. Bad lighting can destroy the mood, the impression and the perception of any scene. Thus, it is a high-wire act that needs some experience and also the courage to make some mistakes along the learning curve. We have already created a big number of movies that show the use and the effect of reflected light, and those you will find on our YouTube channel, as well as on dedo.tv, or on our website. Feel invited, not only to watch, but also to the dialog, the criticism, and to present your own reactions and emotions and suggestions. Come to my sandbox, play with me, I am waiting for you. I enjoy this very much.
