Faculty Barry Underwood
Prerequisite(s) Fundamentals of Studio Lighting

This is an advanced-level course that facilitates discussion of the visual language of lighting for photographic processes in the larger context of contemporary art, photography, cinema, and digital media. Building on skills learned in Fundamentals of Studio Lighting, Advanced Studio Lighting expands the student’s knowledge of controlled artificial light. This course emphasizes the process involved to produce a portfolio of both portrait and product images, in a coherent body of work based on a theme, concept, or selected subject matter. The course focuses on how photographers and filmmakers use lighting as an element of storytelling. Students investigate the theory and practice of lighting within the history of photography and cinema lighting design. A component of the course engages students collaboratively to develop and execute lighting for a variety of scenes, presented for peer critique. Coursework also includes regular screenings and discussions of films, written papers and lab exercises. Prerequisite: PHV 292 Fundamentals of Studio Lighting.
