Introduce Yourself : Practice... by Stephen Crawford

Stephen Crawford


Hello all, I am new to the site, but I am full of questions. What would be the best way to practice cinematography if I do not really have many people to help me or at least stand in front of the camera?

One of the best way I have found is to..... watch a movie an break it down. Ie... movement. Then go out and grab your camera a mimic the move. This will give you the feeling of the movement. Quality does not matter here... It's just you and the idea. Then go back an watch your movie again. You really don't need talent, just the idea of the movement. Later, you can practice on yourself, or others. Also, try to notice the color of the scene. It's very important as it will place and set the feeling too.
