Delighting with Three Point Lighting!

Three point lighting is a production set up used commonly in photography, videography and cinematography. It's important for students interested in these areas to understand the importance of this concept and how to make it happen using three studio or field lights.

I had my TV production and editing students go into our studio and properly execute and photograph three point lighting.

In this photo, Isaiah Hughes (seated left) is being interviewed by Shay Bowman. Wymark Barton is operating the video camera.

The three lights are called the following: key light, side/fill light, and back/hair light.

Chestnut Street Pedestrian Bridge Update- Fall 2016

Construction is moving along on- or we should say above- Chestnut Street by the SC State campus.

Some 1,100 students live in the University Village and Campus Corner apartments across Chestnut Street, meaning many of them daily have to walk across the busy highway to get to school. In 2014, SC State students held a rally to call for the over the road span, which has been the scene of at least one injury and many close calls.

The bridge has long been advocated by the SC State community because of the potential hazards students face crossing the high-speed highway.

Here's a video update report I produced:

The bridge should soon be open. Months ago, March was the predicted completion month. It appears today that only final touches need to be done, including placing the SC State logo on the bridge. This rendering shows how the finished project will look. And it sure looks good, right?!
