This is my 'inaugural' post, though I've been reading the site forums for a while.

I just wanted to mention a cinematographer that has done some absolutely
beautiful work.

A friend pointed me toward the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" TV series on DVD.
I'd never seen them when they were broadcast.

Michael Gershman was the D.P. on the first 5 seasons or so ( and apparently
directed a few episodes, as well ).

If you haven't seen these, I'd recommend that you check them out. He's
created these wonderful, shadowy interiors that are jaw-droppingly
beautiful. The treatment of the actors' faces is really unusual, too. Lots of
dappled light across faces, faces in partial shadow.

I've found myself just studying the light in these shows -- it's that good.

I have never seen anything like it. It's really unconventional. I aspire to
that quality of work.

Regards,

P.S. The only online image sample I could find that hints at the visual quality of
this show: Image from TV.com
