Trish brought a unique vision to this project and it was a blast making it come to life. Shoots like these are why I became a cinematographer: building worlds and crafting images.
In the last blog post I talked about the process of preproduction and how to find and make a look. You talked to the director and found your reference images. How does one transfer the lighting to one’s own film?
