Taking a process-oriented approach, this text introduces the steps involved in lighting design in the order they are encountered in practice. From sensitive and creative design choices, to intelligent ways to implement them, the book engages students with real-life examples from academic, not-for-profit, professional, and commercial productions. Because the focus is on the process of design, rather than its technology, the text will not become obsolete as technology changes.
