Short Term Courses

Camera & Lighting

Duration: 6 Months
Eligibility: 10+2

There was a time in the history of the film and TV industry when a Camera person was considered to be a highly technical person who was only supposed to operate the camera. However, today things have changed a lot and a cameraperson needs a lot more than mere technical skills to operate and run the instrument. Today, a Camera person better known as a Cinematographer is more of a creative than technical personnel. He or she is also referred to as the Director of Photography.

Delhi Film Institute, therefore understands that apart from merely learning the operations of the camera, it is also necessary to learn the importance of lighting up an object before shooting. Only then a certain image created by a Camera person can be categorised as professional.

The lenses used for various images desired by the director, the shutter, the aperture, the behaviour of light in relation to an image and many other technical details are behind the creation of the simplest of images we get to see. All this knowledge and information has to be at the back of the hands of a cameraperson so that he or she can manipulate them in the right way even within the shortest span of time. Only then can the camera be used as a means to create rather than getting entangled in its technical snare.

Our students at the institute get professional training along with hands on experience in studio and classroom exercises designed to create a professional milieu. It is a comprehensive course where students are taught the about the parts and operations of the camera along with the added benefit of learning the system of lighting alongside.
