Hey,

I'm interested in picking up a few books focused mainly on lighting, greenscreen work, visual effects and set design. With lots of photos, how-to's, production diaries and technical specs.

Any recommendations?

Cheers,
Jonathan

Screen Craft Cinematography Book
ZOran Perisic's VFX book
Screen Craft Production Design Book
Various Lighting Books

Malkiewicz's film lighting book is one of the best bedside table books ever!

I'd heartily reccomend John Alton's "Painting With Light" - a bunch of it is technically outdated, but so many of the principles ring so true - and it's written with great gusto and humor. Check it out!
