Came across this fascinating documentary about John Alcott, Stanley Kubrick's DP of choice for A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, and The Shining.

I worked for John many years ago. What a talented gentleman he was.

I watched that once but I don't recall anyone saying what the six kinds of light were.

I assume it refers to the six subjects of the series.

I can't find any information online about who the other five cinematographers were.
