What Cinematography Techniques Are Best for Your Story?

Posted on: by Michael Tringe

Have you ever wanted to recreate that perfect shot in that movie you just saw?

I think it is safe to say with a fair amount of confidence that the answer is yes. Would you be visiting this website if it wasn’t? I remember one time, not too long ago, I was in the theater seeing a new releases. All of a sudden, there was a scene that was shot so beautifully and so exquisitely crafted that I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. Do I want to make that exact same shot in my own work? No. However, I do want to understand its draw and why it impacted. I want to be able to make my own audiences feel that way, and I hope many of you share my drive as well.

You may be wondering what the difference between two angles will be, or how to light the scene for a certain mood. Here are four videos to help you begin your journey into Cinematography.
