All my experience is with digital still photography, and its all indoors with multiple flash units. As I shift over to video, I now realize I am a complete beginner again. I have experiments with tungston lighting, but the results are very mixed - like the dynamic range of the capture CCD is too narrow to give the scenes the tonal range my eyes see.
My question is about video and how anyone, with experience, uses lighting to get the video quality that is more like what is seen on quality HDTV (720P) programs on network televison. The video quality, on shows like CSI, seem to have tonal range that seems perfect. Maybe its the camera hardware - or maybe its the lighting - or maybe its software?
Thanks in advance for any pointers, books or courses!
