Light fantastic : the art and design of stage lighting
Francis Reid : Focal Press. Reid introduces a series of practical exercises designed to take the reader through a journey in the basics of lighting design.
Requires access to equipment and a suitable space to get the best from it. Not a book to just read. At university, I suggest these for Level 5 second year undergraduate students.
Books On Stage Lighting – Reading List
Richard Pilbrow : Nick Hern Books. A beginner could own this book alone and be satisfied with it. Focus on Lighting Technology. Richard Cadena : ET Press. A look at the technology behind modern lighting.
Cadena is an author that habitually tackles technological developments and theories and gets them into print. With the speed of development ever increasing, this is looking harder while keeping current but this books is good for the developing technician.
Not many books attempt to gather all the bits and pieces after the explosion of moving light technology. This book is good on concepts, technology and history and techie geekiness. In modern theatre, understanding automated lighting programming is becoming a must. Concert Lighting Systems John Vasey : Focal Press Looking at the business of touring and temporary systems, this books contains useful information about using portable dimming and lighting systems, basic rigging and safety.
Not so much a design book, one of the good ones about the business of life on the road and the equipment you take with you.
Advancing Your Learning in Stage Lighting These books are particularly relevant to those with a good grounding in the technology and the basics of lighting design and wish to move further.
Light Fantastic : The Art and Design of Stage Lighting
At University, I suggest these books to Level 6 final year undergraduate students. This oversize, full colour book is great for lighting design students that want to be inspired and prefer plenty of visual media such as large colour photographs of lighting designs in action. This books is full of different elements, including information on US lighting practice and equipment.
The real gems in this book are the early sections on the development of ideas and the artistry behind lighting design, rather than plonking fixtures on a plan. I suggest this for lighting design students that wish to push their design development on. A Practical Guide To Stage Lighting Design Steve Shelley : Focal Press Although this book can be useful at any stage, I feel this contains some great information that is best understood by those with a bit of lighting history.
Demonstrating the theories behind designing lights for the theatre, it has been updated to include information relevant to the modern world of lighting while still retaining all those simple lighting principles that will never change.
Also available in the US at site. Lighting And Sound is split into two parts covering the two different subjects and gives you an excellent grounding in the basics of theatre lighting. Lighting design principles are well explained with some nice illustrations and there is a useful glossary of theatre terms. The sound section gives you a good introduction to theatre sound although if you have a little experience, you will probably want to get a more in depth guide. It also has different problems and solutions.
This book does not pretend to be a guide to the first principles of lighting design, but explains the techniques and processes involved in lighting live concerts. Particular attention is given to aspects of touring and quick set ups and introduces an important part of temporary stage lighting systems — rigging. Concert Sound and Lighting Systems shows you techinques that are also highly relevant to modern award shows and coropate events. Intelligent Lighting has been a huge driving force in lighting for the entertainment industry for quite a few years now.
Where it was once a weird luxury, it is now as much a part of stage lighting as a w fresnel. The crossover between theatre, live shows, concerts, television and corporate events means that the lighting design boundaries now blur.
