The session, which took place on September 30, was led by lighting expert and media technology engineer, Dennis Jackstien and focused on LED lighting for videography.
The day consisted of a classroom-based session during which the participants learned more about the theoretical aspects of using light for videography, followed by practical hands-on training.
