Light is a form of expression, form of storytelling. Light is pretty much life.
– Janusz Kaminski
Have you ever thought about what Light is? Apart from physics and other sciences I think that basically light is the life itself. It’s that energy, the ultimate force, that gives life to the Universe. Light and Darkness, their balance and harmony, are the basics of every creative process. The play of highlights and shadows is pretty much the art itself. In photography and cinimatography light is a vital, defining element, that creates a picture we can see.
A photographer is a visual storyteller; we speak through light & shadow. – Janusz Kaminski
Cinematographer is an enterpreter who uses light and composition to affect an audience as perception of what’s going on in that story. – Michael Negrin
Cinematography is about defining light and space. – Francis Kenny
I want to share with you my latest discovery, a brilliant and inspiring documentary “Light and shadow” by Steve Weiss, where legendary cinematographers talk about their personal perspectives on creativity, vision and life.
