hey im fresh to this game and I am learning more and more each day and loving it as im sure all of you are. I am overwhelmed by the vast amount of knowledge and insight that is expressed on this site, I am learning alot on set working with DOPs and ACs, I am studying and reading when i don't have a camera in my control but I am curious to find any great books that you could recommend as gems and bibles that helped you starting out......


Thanks
Trev

This is one of my favourite reads. Good to dip into the night before a new shoot :-)
