As a companion to their lighting kits, ARRI put out a nice handbook of lighting basics using their kits full of basic information usable for any brand lights. Click on the article below for the page where you’ll find the handbook in the top right corner.
LIGHTING THEORIES AND TECHNIQUES:
There have been dozens of books throughout the past decades that have discussed “standard” lighting setups for interviews, talk shows, dramas and countless other productions. This handbook is designed to help you create the best possible images with your new Arri Lighting Kit and help you to use these tools when lighting location or studio productions.
CHOOSING A LIGHT SOURCE:
Arri Kits contain a variety of lighting fixtures. The two basic types of instruments are the open-faced instrument and the Fresnel-lensed instrument. Both types of light sources provide a focusable, even beam field of light that can be used to create a wide variety of light qualities and moods for your productions.
