I'm looking for some books that are common in film schools, or that are very good beginner level books to kind of get a jumpstart on my studies. Any suggestions? I've heard that Cinematography by Blain Brown and also Motion Picture and Video Lighting, Is that true?

The Five C's of Cinematography by Joseph V. Mascelli is my Number 1

also the MasterShot's Series is good.

 

BUT i stopped reading Books and purchased a 1 Year Membership at MZed. These are Cinematography Masterclasses each running 6 hours and more.

They contain litterally everything you need to know, Vincent Laforet's Masterclass is brilliant. The best thing ever. It costs you a lil bit but it's worth every cent!!
