Khondji definitely defined the 90's as probably the most influential DP of that era. The 2000's are harder to call, but I'd say it's extremely naturalistic cinematographers like Savides, Lubezki.....

hi
I agree on Khondji and Deakins, 2 differents styles but the "look" of the 90's.
For the naturalistic image i'm found of Barry ackroyd's work on his drama-documentary films with Ken loach.
Did the 90's had one style like the other decades or is it the begining of a "multi-style" period.
You understood i was talking about feature film vs to commercials.
What is your opinion

Perhaps with media becoming more and more accessible we are seeing a wider variety of styles appearing, but I would say that each decade always had a variety of styles, some becoming predominant.

Maybe now, as in music, we are starting to see amalgamations of lots of styles. One genre borrows from the next, one region borrows from the next. Homogenization will eventually have a backlash, i think, whereby people will return to their regional roots.

It's nice that there are so many avenues to pursue and so many tools with which to pursue them.

I like his lighting and choice of lenses, i like his lighting fade outs and his use of diffusion, though i dont think he used any on the aviator? Okay okay it dident blow me away,but it knocked my socks off!!!
