Lighting Design is an aspect of environment design and/or set design, which includes and can focus on the study of the physiological and psychological effects of lighting design, sustainable practices, civic responsibility, and of course, the aesthetic design of lighting itself.
“As a lead lighter I am responsible for creating the initial lighting set-up for a particular sequence
to simulate the lighting conditions,” Bhatawadekar said. “I capture the mood for that sequence as
envisioned by the art director, visual effects supervisor, and the production designer.”
