July 30th at Unique Photo, Dave Landau presents Lighting For Cinematography


Just because our cameras are super sensitive does not mean we shouldn’t use lighting. We are pleased to welcome back to the NJVA, Dave Landau, cinematographer, writer, director and teacher who will talk about the art of cinema lighting and show examples from his latest project, Stray, as well as talking about his newly released book Lighting for Cinematography.  At the same meeting a rep from Panasonic will demo their latest DLSR, the GH4, capable of shooting in 4k resolution.

Dave Landau began his lighting career in 1977 as an intern with academy award-winning cinematographer, Haskell Wexler on the film, “Coming Home”, starring Jane Fonda and John Voight. A member of both NABET and IATSE, the unions representing television and film technicians, Dave has amassed an impressive resume over the years, working in commercials, industrials, broadcast television and feature films.

In 2002, Landau began a second career, teaching lighting and cinematography at Farleigh Dickinson University where he continues as a professor today, balancing his teaching duties with assignments in the industry.

Dave is the author of the new textbook “Lighting for Cinematography” by Bloomsbury Press and the editor of their new CineTech Guides to the Film Crafts series as well as being a five time Telly Award winner for lighting and cinematography.  Dave is also currently the president of the New Jersey chapter the Media Communications Association – International (MCA-I)
