About This Class

Learn how to create your own light leaks with any video camera; even your phone!

When superimposed over video footage or still photos, a LIGHT LEAK adds a distinct style and feel to your content. You can use them as an overlay and even as a transition between two video clips.

If you go online, you will find that there are a plethora of light leaks already available for sale, and even some for free. But why buy or download one when you can do it yourself? In this course I’m going to show you how you can create and customize your own organic light leaks, and then I’ll teach you a variety of ways to use them in your projects.

The cool part is, you don’t need any professional video or photography equipment to create these. I’ll be using all common items you will most likely already own.

FYI I will be using Adobe Premiere Pro to work with these light leaks, but you can use any similar video editing software such as Final Cut or AVID. You can download a FREE trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro CC here.
