Light, such as air, water and soil, is one of the most basic items of life. Light is needed for most things to exist and to grow. Art theorist Rudolf Arnheim states that the artist's understanding of light affects the general attitudes and behaviors of man in two ways. The first is light brings the objects of the light into a perceivable state in their real environment. The second is that the artist saves objects from the physical reality of the scientists. When light is considered as an aesthetic element, it is necessary to emphasize the technical qualities of the used vehicle and the process of extracting artifacts on the surface. In film art, the image is formed on the surface of the light sensitive film, and in the video system it is formed electronically on the tape surface. Lighting in documentary and short film is necessary for technical and aesthetic reasons. Technical reasons can be considered as brightness, contrast, color temperature and white balance. Aesthetic lighting is important in terms of forming the mise-en-scene. The scope of this work is the creation of new communication technologies in relation to lighting and cameras. In documentary and short film studies, the developments in lighting technology and its reflection on the film brings importance to work.
