Hello Cinematographers!

I've been ghosting these forums from time to time and returning every once in awhile when I have certain questions about the art of cinematography & thus far I must say I'm very thankful a site on the net like this exists where professionals are so willing to discuss the particulars of their craft. Truly a blessing.

I put the question out there: Is there an exceptional book out on the market which discusses the art and craft of cinematography in great, and digestible detail? I'm sure answers may differ, but perhaps some can lend their inspirations and influences to me so I may study further.

I currently own a well-used copy of the American Cinematographer Manual and do grasp the technical aspects of cinematography quite well now, but want to explore more of the "look" and "feel" of it from a conceptual standpoint.

I look forward to reading any responses offered and exploring new avenues of inspiration from the minds of others.

Cheers,

- Andrew

After posting this upon impulse, I've noticed a topic at the top of this forum which answers my question, so I feel this topic is actually quite redundant and don't know how to remove it. If however anyone has anything new to offer, please do!
