"This is the first comprehensive work by one of the world's greatest film cameramen. It will serve as an authoritative source of information on camera technique in large scale feature productions. The text describes the duties of the director of photography in detail; his working condition, the people with whom he comes into contact, his day to day routine and equipment. It explores lighting and camerawork for every conceivable indoor and outdoor situation, including special effects and techniques. It discusses the nature of his relationship with the director within the context of the film, and then looks into his wider involvements with process as a whole." The book is illustrated with photographs and technical drawings.
The book itself is in very good condition, with a neat previous owner's name to the ffep. The dustwrapper is faded to the spine but is otherwise clean and has not been price-clipped.
