As a Director of Photography I’m the one photographing with a motion picture camera (the art and science of which is known as cinematography). The title, used to designate a chief over the camera and lighting crews working on a film, responsible for achieving artistic and technical decisions related to the image. The term “cinematographer” applies when the director of photography and camera operator are the same person.
Three things are necessary to become a good director of photography: training, experience, and a good eye. I’m also the director whose skills include photography, design and film making. May I have an unorthodox style and an unbalanced frame since sometimes I ignore the rules in a quest to define Web & EventCinematography.
Nowadays technological advancements allow us to take our love and understanding of light and composition to the next level. The DSLR generation can shoot, edit and score an HD film in a day, something unheard of just a few years ago.
