Hey ya'll. I'm a new cinematographer here, and I wanted to know what your suggestions would be for books on lighting, filters, and anything relating to those that I may not have asked about.

Thank you mucho!

That's a lot of books - great resource. If you're looking for a place to start, I would recommend "Film Lighting" by Kris M. and "Directing: Shot by Shot"

I would also recommend watching the movie "Visions of Light."

Then I would move to something that approaches the how-to technical side.

I just bought the book "Reflections" by Benjamin Bergery and it's a great resource. It's an excellent insight into the minds of some of the best Cinematographers. Right now there's a couple good deals with the "Reflections" book. You can buy it with "The ASC Manual" for a decent price or with "Painting with Light".
Keep reading threads on this site, there are some very knowledgeable people here.
