Session 2: Cinematography
Tue, Mar 31, 7-8pm

Sometimes described as writing with light and movement, cinematography entails the choice of film stock, lenses, framing, shot duration, and camera movement, all of which determine how we see the things, people and environments placed before the camera. Led by Iggy Cortez
