A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting
Combining theory and application, “A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting” provides a comprehensive analysis of lighting systems along with step-by-step examples and illustrations of the technical tools and methods.
Readers will benefit from experience-based tips, techniques and traps to avoid in preparing and executing a lighting design. Anecdotes illustrate why some techniques succeed while others fail.
Existing textbooks about theatrical lighting analyse artistic vision and visual concepts, which are important for the aspiring designer. These texts do not, however, provide any information about the mechanics required to produce those visions.
This book addresses the realities of working in the theatre using practical methods to squeeze flexibility out of a lighting system and present solutions to common problems. It includes practical approach to lighting design and implementation; experience-based tips and traps to avoid; and provides thorough examination of the documents used.
