Go to this page at Cinematography.com for a wealth of books that can help: http://www.cinematog...showtopic=33075
ALSO, I have a growing list of websites, magazines, and books that will help you actually build a real career in the movie business. Go to http://www.whatireallywanttodo.com and click on the "Additional Resources" link at the top.
You already have a great start and foundation to build on. The best learning you're ever going to get is to just go out and start doing it. Lighting for film isn't too far off of video, so it won't be too difficult.

I know absolutely nothing about Pakistan, however if you have a film industry at all, then you must have working cinematographers. If you have no film schools, then they probably still work on the old(er) system of apprenticeship - one master teaching a student how to become good - perhaps you can find one of these people?
How r u i hope u a good and enjoying.first of all i thank u for reply me and your suggestion.
Absolutly we have a film industry but we have lack of good film makers.there are some countable Directors and good DOPs working.our film industry is very back.movies are making but not good 98% of the movies are not running because of not standard,most of the people of pakistan are want to watch Indian movies.because there movies are good in making and no doubt artits are also very good perform there performance.
unfortunatly we have not these are.
if i get a chance for learning cinematography i will change the trin of cinematography in my country and will try to improve the industry.i love camera working and i hope i will get success in my aim.Inshallah
