I started reading this before I started filmschool and that was maybe a mistake. Some chapters were easy, but others were harder to understand without a little background.

So after a few months of studying film in all its glory, it was a little easier to get through it. Definitely interesting when you're in the business or at least already know somethings about it. If you are very interested in the subject and this is the only book on Cinematography in your local library, by all means, read it!

Otherwise, look some place else. Shallow rehashing of old mindless stereotypes. Of course the light is important in cinematography, if there was only a dark screen it would have been a radio play.

Of course X is relevant, but that important? View 2 comments. Oct 30, Duane rated it really liked it. Brown has found a way to mix art and tech together in a way that allows the reader to easily absorb a very technical field. I have many of the cinematography books on the market and I've found this one to be the most interesting and easy to read.

What I like is that Brown will give you a lot of heavy technical info if you desire, but also real life practical on set anecdotes and protocols as well as art history and theory. I really enjoyed the color theory chapter with examples from The Natural. It feels like a quality book as the pages are filled with glossy photos and charts. My one caveat is that some of the photos are really too small to properly absorb.

You get almost thumbnail size photos for a lot of the pictures. It would be nice if they were bigger. There is a lot of information packed into this tome. There are also quotes and tidbits taken from various cinematographers and filmmakers. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in cinematography or film-making in general.

Not just did I read it in its entirety, it is also my Go To Book for whenever I need answers or find certain ways to light specific scenes. Sometimes I use it for inspirational purposes and sometimes to double check technical specifics or a combination of those two :.

Jan 23, Michel Boto rated it really liked it. Very informative, but feel free to jump around if you have a background in still photography. My only problem with this book were the numerous typos and grammatical errors in almost every chapter. Please hire a proofreader, Mr. Apr 30, Matt rated it liked it.

The first half is useful as a general overview for a layperson Filmspace, Visual Language, Lens Language, Camera Dynamics, Continuity, etc , but the second half is likely only accessible given a more extensive background in photography, color theory and optics. Many of the later chapters are enumerations of specific pieces of equipment and techniques for their use which can be difficult to follow without practical experience working with them.

This edition also had numerous typographical errors The first half is useful as a general overview for a layperson Filmspace, Visual Language, Lens Language, Camera Dynamics, Continuity, etc , but the second half is likely only accessible given a more extensive background in photography, color theory and optics.

For my cine specialisation i am reading this and this is really good. Oct 22, James Caterino rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , movie-and-tv-tie-ins. I love the art of cinematograpy. In another universe I am a director. Superbly organized with eye catching graphs and pictures, this comprehensive book is loaded with tons of fascinating and useful information.

Best of all is the section on video that coherently explains the fascinating history of the video signal and the various formats that have evolved. The comparisons between film and video are also well done and help explain why despite the digital mania and the HD 24FPS advances, most cinem I love the art of cinematograpy. The comparisons between film and video are also well done and help explain why despite the digital mania and the HD 24FPS advances, most cinematographers still prefer to shoot on film and why projects originated on film still look better.

This book might be a bit dry in parts and too technically oriented for non-film school types. But almost anyone with even a casual interest in cinematography will find something to like and learn from in this page cinematography bible. Jan 24, Patrick rated it liked it. This book provides a broad overview of the technical aspects of cinematography, and it seems to be reliable, but it needs to be edited.

Often the same information is repeated two or more times in one paragraph or series of pages, and sometimes it is phrased differently enough, or far enough after the initial statement, to make one wonder whether they are intended to describe the same thing or different cases entirely.

In addition, references in the text to diagrams or pictures sometimes use the This book provides a broad overview of the technical aspects of cinematography, and it seems to be reliable, but it needs to be edited.

In addition, references in the text to diagrams or pictures sometimes use the wrong identifying number. Lastly, while I wasn't looking for some stylistic masterpiece, the writing is pretty dull. On the whole, the book is much more tedious and confusing than it should be. Jan 20, Vanessa rated it liked it Shelves: game-development. I am not a cinematographer, but this provided me with a good overview of the field for the purposes of my work as a game cinematics producer and I learned a lot about how movies are made, to boot.

Jan 08, Harry Pray IV rated it really liked it. Very good, informative book on the subject. Read the whole thing in Barnes and Noble one day.
