Hi,

If you were a beginner I would get the book first - I think that for learning basics its a great book to start with - I love it - I suppose its a good refresher as well but maybe not the best if you already know stuff. I watched a few of the DVDs in the past and wasn't that impressed with them - they're ok but not that structured as far as I can tell. Just an opinion.

As I've said in other forums, the Reflections book is a fantastic read for a beginner. It has a lot of lighting techniques from some of the current lighting masters, and it goes over a lot of processing tactics and each DP's own aesthetic feelings for filmmaking. I highly recommend it.

Haven't seen the DVD's myself.
