Paper Abstract

Bio mechanics cinematography laboratories, by their nature require effective light levels, versatility in equipment selection and positioning, and intensity control by both mechanical and electrical means. Comfort and safety is a prime consideration in the selection and placement of equipment. Because power services have to be rated for maximum utilization of lighting loads,electrical feeds must be sized for the maximum lighting load. The calculation of power factors based on the efficiency of continuous duty tungsten halogen lighting equipment require an understanding of the efficiencies of this equipment. By establishing the wattage per square foot demand based on maximum intensity values, the appropriate electrical services may be determined and distribution equipment properly selected. Photographic lighting techniques designed to enhance the data quality are relatively simple and seldom used. Appropriate positioning and selection of lighting equipment to improve the image quality is discussed.
