Lighting The Gadget Scientist

Posted on Updated on

Ian Pack and Paul Noble are working with Mark Burton – author of The Gadget Scientist™ – to produce a series of videos to promote his superb book.

Ian has blogged about the lighting set up they have used: “See how I developed the lighting for Mark’s PTC (Piece To Camera) shot in Paul’s studio. I chose to use Rosco Lightpads exclusively because they are quick to set up, energy efficient, daylight colour balanced and cool running so consequently do not cook the talent!”
