Discusses very fully both the technical and the artistic aspects of lighting. The author tells just what lights are used and where placed by the movie expert to create, for instance, the illusion of early morning light in an interior; to light long shots or close-ups of interiors for depth or special focus; to indicate a light being turned on or a match struck, or to light special senses such as a moving train at night, a fireside, or an operating room.
