Photographic Cinematography

Standard

Photographic cinematography is the art and technology of motion picture photography.  It involves many different things such as the general composition of a scene, the lighting of the location or scene, the choices of cameras, lenses, filters, and film stock, the camera and movements, and the combination of any special effects.

the-green-mile

The first film that I selected is from The Green Mile (1999).  This shot was taken by David Tattersall.  This is a great example of cinematography because it captures an important part of the movie that reflects all the emotion needed to set the mood.  Paul is a Death-row Officer and he, along with Brutus, another Death-row Officer overlooking, is threatening Percy (a hateful prisoner worker) that he will be sorry if he continues to be  hurtful to the Death-row prisoners.

titanic

For my second film choice, I found a scene from Titanic (1997).  This was taken by Russel Carpenter.  This pictures shows the love and carefree attitudes of Jack (a poor third-class artist) and Rose (a rich first-class citizen) as they play around the ship’s deck.  They are having a secret love affair that would have been forbidden by everyone.
