Samenvatting

There's more to being a DP than holding a light meter! With this book as your guide, you are on your way to learning not only about the equipment and technology, but also about the concepts and thought processes that will enable you to shoot professionally, efficiently, and with artistic mastery. A leading book in the field, Cinematography has been translated into many languages and is a staple at the world's top film schools. Lavishly produced and illustrated, it covers the entire range of the profession. The book is not just a comprehensive guide to current professional practice; it goes beyond to explain the theory behind the practice, so you understand how the rules came about and when it's appropriate to break them. In addition, directors will benefit from the book's focus on the body of knowledge they should share with their Director of Photography.

Recensie(s)

The main purpose of this book is to introduce cinematography/ filmmaking as we practice it on a professional level. It includes the basic introduction to the essential concept of visual storytelling and more. Cinema is a language and within it the specific vocabularies and sublanguages of the lens, composition, visual design, lighting, image control, continuity, movement, and point-of-view. Learning these languages and vocabularies is a never-ending and a fascinating life-long study. --NeoPopRealism Journal A gorgeous piece of work that bids to become a classic text on cinematography...Few books on cinematography meld aesthetics and pragmatics as deftly as this one. --American Cinematographer The gorgeous illustrations bring movies to life, and the modern approach that incorporates digital as well as film means that this book can be used for years to come. --Judy Irola, ASC. Head of Cinematography, USC School of Cinematic Arts The book is a wonderful, well-organized and knowledgable collection of all information a cinematographer may need. I recommend it highly. --Andrew Laszlo, ASC This book shows that there is more to the DP than holding the light meter--he needs to understand so much more about using photography to tell a story, create a mood, evoke an emotion. No other text I know of stresses this to this extent. --Douglas C. Hart, First Camera Assistant, Instructor, and Author of The Camera Assistant Cinematography is a skillfully written guide to the technical craft and artistry of cinematography for today's cinematographers and directors. It presents each aspect of cinematography in precise language to help all filmmakers better understand the complexities with which the cinematographer engages during every moment of every shot. -Michael Hofstein, Director of Photography Blain Brown's book is a necessity for anyone who is starting out or still working in the media acquisition industry. -Don Lampasone, Producer/Editor/DP/VFX Artist (Austin, TX) [Cinematography] is a comprehensive, muscular, and authoritative guide to what cinematography means: [it] refreshingly addresses the why's with greater emphasis than the how's. A tourist's phrasebook and fluent speaker's aide memoire of the language and practice of making films. -Phil South, Writer, Film and Creativity Coach (http://goingdownwriting.wordpress.com) There's more to being a DP than holding a light meter!

    Ondanks dat ik nog niet veel ervaring heb in de filmindustrie, heb ik ontzettend veel geleerd uit dit boek. Alle moeilijke termen worden met duidelijke taal en veel voorbeelden uitgelegd. Daarom is het ook goed te gebruiken als naslagwerk op de set, wanneer je even snel iets terug wilt zoeken.
