This is an excellent introduction to stage lighting! Jam packed with material, and well explained. There are lots of things that lights are doing, whether on stage or in daily life. Once done with the class, you will notice those little things so much more and be excited to try to create all kinds of looks with lights. If you ever had to deal with lights as a producer, director, or lighting designer, this is a very useful introduction.
