I am a film student and aspiring DP whose especially interested in lighting. I'm still learning the basics and one step along the way is to get familiar with the types of lights: their specific qualities and differences, best situations for each, common brands, etc. So far I have noticed these categories: Par, Fresnel, Open Faced and Redhead. What are the unique qualities and common uses for each category of light? Are there any other types than these?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
