Hello I'm new to the forum and I am an up and coming director. I hear a good director knows cinematography and I'm only 15 and I know a little bit about it but I want to learn more. Anyone know anyway I can?

Thanks (:

get a still camera. start taking pictures. get a video camera. start shooting video. watch lots of movies. read about the movies you watch. read American Cinematographer magazine. Read everything on this website.

if you do all of those things you will have an excellent foundation to move forward with telling stories with moving pictures.

and above all have fun
