This review is from: FIVE C'S OF CINEMATOGRAPHY: Motion Pictures Filming Techniques (Paperback)
Having read through many books of a similar nature for my dissertation, this is the one I referenced the most and the one having the most significant and informative impact to its reader. Having read many cinematography books, and books on how to stylistically edit, this is the one I always came back to which explained and dealt with very complex and refined techniques, but skimmed of their fat and shown in their most basic and essential form. Although the examples are old, the techniques used hold philosophies to them which when applied with modern filmmaking techniques, give an almost infinite amount of combinations possible for visual narrative. Mix the old with the new, this book will carry forward ideas that you will use with whatever it is you learn later on in your line of work.
