When you are telling a story aesthetically on film, it is not only about just recording, rather it is an art of motion picture photography in the form of visual storytelling, which is known as cinematography. From lighting, framing, composition, to camera motion and its perspective, from close-up to long shorts, tracking to dolly, low angle to panning and tilting, key, fill, or the back lighting, each of the elements and techniques of cinematography set the look and mood of the visual narratives and ensure every element is cohesive to support the story. In this detailed course we are going to learn and master them all.
