Explore how cinematographers use their artistry, craft, and technology to author images that support the director's interpretation of the story. Participants will examine how the quality, angle, colour, and quantity of light affects or influences the image. Composition, lens selection, depth of field, aspect ratio, camera height, and camera movement -- and their collective effect on the story -- are discussed.
The workshop also reviews how cinematographers work collaboratively with the director, production designer or art director, and other members of the production team to create a film's 'look' -- all with a goal to provide participants techniques they can implement on their productions.
Please note that this workshop is more theoretical-based than hands-on.
