Assets to generate lighting diagrams and setups.
There are no Free/Libre resources for creating photographic lighting diagrams available. This repo is an attempt to rectify that. All of the assets hosted here are available under a Creative Commons, Attribution-ShareAlike license.
This was prompted by community member Eric Mesa.
If you just want to grab the shapes to build your own lighting diagrams, you can just grab the combined.svg file (Right-click, Save link as...). It should contain all of the assets.
I think a list of useful assets would be helpful for those wanting to contribute something. A first take:
- Lighting Modifiers
- Softbox (+ grid?)
- Umbrella (+ grid?)
- Octabox (+ grid?)
- Barn Doors / Gobo
- Light stands? (C-Stands?)
- Backgrounds (+ stands)
If you add new assets, please remember to add them to
combined.svg so that users can grab just that file if they want all of the shapes at once (without having to download the .zip or clone the entire repo).
For maximum compatibility and scalability create the components as scalable vector graphics (SVG) in Inkscape. This will let all users scale them as needed for their output.
Possibly put each unique asset in it's own svg file right now? This should facilitate drag-and-drop into Inkscape for inclusion quickly and easily.
