Hey Everyone,

I have been reading posts here for a while but never actually posted myself. Was hoping I could get some feedback on my work and ideas on how to grow as a cinematographer. This is my first reel, here it is:



thanks

The reel had some intriguing images in it, and I really liked the black and white footage (I presume that was film?). But the main problem I have is that I haven't seen anything that appears to show your skills as a DOP. As an operator, I can see some basic framing preferences, but the cuts are too quick to see enough of that aspect of your work. However, it seems to me that the rest of your footage was not given any consideration exposure-wise; meaning - lighting, filtration, etc. So my question to you is what are you aiming for with your reel?

Also, please please please get rid of the SMPTE bars and tone at the start of the reel. It's completely unnecessary unless someone is going to be watching this on a Grade A broadcast monitor.
