Teal and Orange ?
Using predominately cold blue hues and mixing them with warmer yellow orange hues as your main colour pallete.
Extensive use on many Hollywood productions. It's colour science apparantly complimentary colours "pop" on screen.
Although saying that possibly the most consistantly brilliant cinematographer of the last 25 years does a "Nice Teal & Orange" is a little off I think!

I know you did John! I don't think it applies to "Prisoners" either. I think I was just clarifying it for myself! Just a wee rant!

Lubezki will win for Gravity. And he should, even though it was mostly done in cgi. It's his vision and his lighting in the computer and his specialised techniques on set.

It's so damned hard to believe he hasn't won. I wrote pieces about O BROTHER and THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE and was sure he was going to win for both; I've talked to him since about how he advises for animation projects and then for SKYFALL, and it is just amazing he hasn't walked off with a couple just for the last decade.
I do concur about GRAVITY; the vfx are entirely an extension of the DP's very specific vision, and he was on from the beginning, unlike, say AVATAR, where the DP came in something like a year after the start of what I guess you'd call principal photography.

Just goes to show how the DP Oscar can be such a weird one.. alot of the academy probably dont know much about it.. but the nominations almost matter more.. as they are only by peers.. which say alot about Deakin's work ..

So happy for him that he finally took home the gold. His work is an inspiration.
