The Work of the Motion Picture Cameraman.
Young, Freddie; Petzold, Paul
Meant to serve as an authoritative source of information on camera work in large scale feature productions, this book attempts to give some basic understanding of the problems of motion picture photography, the working conditions and artistry of lighting for mood and dramatic effect, budget problems for making films, and facts about working with a team. The test describes the duties of the director of photography in detail, photographic equipment needed, lighting methods and objectives, camera techniques, studio and location effects, how to work with artificial backgrounds, and how to film marine sequences. A glossary is also included. (Author/SH)
