5. Have a link?

Where I could see an example?

I am a 30+ year broadcast TV veteran. I have certifications in television lighting by Kleigl and I.M. Ferrentino and Assoc. back in the day.

Lighting is quite an art and these days done pretty badly. Lighting directors at the networks were usually paid six figure salaries. These days sometimes I don't even know if they still have them. I know one of the big changes is that studio lighting has changed. The use of florescents to cut down on the cost of power usage and lamp replacement has been adopted by a lot of TV stations. That and the change over from SD to HD has changed the expectations of how quality lighting should look...mostly it's to pour enough light on to have the HD cameras (that require more light) make level. Not to mention the fact the floor crew isn't expected to know how to light.
