I’ve just bumped onto this:

I haven’t pressed “play” yet so I don’t know how good this is.

 

The article links to a series of extensive cinematography breakdowns of some recent Hollywood films:

There’s also another link, as you see, to a video with “greatest cinematography of all time”:

In the video about Vittorio Storaro, what film are the frames at 1:19 and the two frames preceding it from?  :ph34r:

 

By the way, David, you got mentioned in the video about Janusz Kamiński, for labelling his cinematography as “impressionist”.

Here I am watching this video about Emmanuel Lubezki, and there are two things I don’t understand.

 

First, the narrator says “One, he has a short _____. That’s when the shadow side faces the camera, ¾ lighting style.”

 

What’s the word after “short” and what is “¾ lighting style”?

 

Two, “The backgrounds are often darker by a stop or more, which he gets through the use of multiple flags” and “The key is often a stop higher.” Darker than what, higher than what?

That's funny, to have my name tossed in there as if people have heard of me...

If they haven't, David, they will. Cameramen usually last a long time.
