A cinematographer's job and goal is to create the images that evoke emotion and provoke thought. Composition, angles, movement, and lighting all work to help craft the story. Hand in hand with the director, the cinematographer works to strengthen the plot. Lighting the set has always played an important role in telling the story and still does, yet are we transitioning from wanting and needing to artificially light "the set," to using available light, or at least a very light touch? Cinematographers discuss the psychology of creating images and manipulating resources to paint a picture on screen.
