Lighting Education-Mole Richardson

I have been lucky enough to have spent quite a bit of time at Mole Richardson, assisting at lighting classes and helping light special events such as film and camera tests, ASC/SOC events, etc.  Larry Parker has been doing an amazing job at educating film students as to how to properly do power distribution and pretty much all elements of lighting a motion picture, all for free, for years.   And the Mole Richardson lights are real things of beauty: built to last three lifetimes.  There is a whole generation of skilled electricians and gaffers out there who have cut their teeth at the Mole Stage.

They have now started to share some of that knowledge online:

I can't wait for the video on operating a carbon arc, my favorite lamp.

I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about, their Elements Of Lighting are very effective.

Faisal- thank you for your kind words. It is a standard blogger template. Thanks for pointing out the Triton site. It looks like the best developed product line for LED lighting that I've seen. The education page is top rate as well. It's surprising how little consumers know about the lighting that they're using.
