Software Cinema has announced The Best of Dean Collins Finelight Video DVD set,
featuring the late Dean Collins, one of the most celebrated educators of lighting
and camera techniques in the industry. To honor Dean Collins, a portion of all
proceeds will be donated to CureSearch, the world's largest pediatric cancer
research organization working towards the cure and prevention of childhood and
adolescent cancer through scientific discovery.
Transferred from video to the high-quality DVD format, this six-hour tutorial
created for photo enthusiasts and professional photographers covers fundamental
and advanced lighting techniques that can be applied to standard or digital photography.
Lessons range from lighting techniques in portrait, product and fashion photography
on both small and large sets. Dean Collins teaches in-studio and on-location about
set up and reasons for lighting when creating the image. Included in the re-release
are commentary and overview by Skip Cohen, Rangefinder Magazine's publisher
and author; Tony Corbell, noted photographer and author; and Julieanne Kost, Adobe's
official Photoshop Evangelist.
Since the loss of Dean Collins to cancer, Software Cinema has become proactive
in the support of cancer research. In Dean's honor, the company now partners
with CureSearch, the largest pediatric cancer research organization. CureSearch
unites the Children's Oncology Group (COG) and the National Childhood Cancer
Foundation (NCCF) through a shared mission to cure and prevent childhood and adolescent
cancer through scientific discovery and compassionate care. For every Dean Collins
DVD purchased, Software Cinema will donate $5 to CureSearch.
