    A must read for every cinematographer_new and old

    as an aspiring professional cinematographer, one starting out in the industry, and thirsting for more knowledge into the art, I found this book to be incredibly useful and insightful. not yet defined as the premiere cinematographers of our age, this book enlightens us to the techniques used by today's top levels image makers and how they and the directors they work with makes the movies which are true works of entertainment and art. i enjoyed reading about such cinematographers as Harry Savides, Lance Accord, John Mathieson, and Jean Yves Escoffier. what a joy it was to enter their creative process and how they create the image we see on the screen. Please, buy this book!!
