Episode #400 is a big one and we have cinematographer Mark Schwartzbard on to help make it special.
Mark has a ton of experience and he shares his thoughts on his latest work for FX on the third season of the show Reservation Dogs.
It has been a wild ride to make it to 400 episodes of talking to some of the best cinematographers, directors, producers, agents and more in the game and hopefully we can keep it going in the future.
The conversations along the way have been so important for shaping my approach to the work and I hope it has been as beneficial for you.
Course Link: Mastering Exposure: The Language of Image Creation
Understanding exposure was key to my development as a cinematographer and the first major unlock of knowledge that made a measurable impact on my ability to create images I was happy with.
The system I used to strengthen my understanding of exposure and how to improve my ability to recognize various patterns of exposure gave me an ability to bypass years of on set experience. The tools that I used and still use to this day were simply unavailable to cinematographers up until a very short time ago.
In Mastering Exposure I breakdown my techniques for learning exposure, we go over just how important exposure actually is, and then lay out my workflow from start to finish as to how to use the knowledge you gain from your studies.
I can confidently say that nothing has made a larger impact on my cinematography abilities than my thorough approach to understanding exposure and how to manipulate it in the most efficient way possible.
My hope is the course will be as impactful for you and your career.

It is a bit of a throwback episode this week on the Patreon Breakdown. I get a kick out of going back a few years and seeing how far the sytel has been pushed in 10 years and at the same time what elements have remained in place.
The spotlight is on Jack Reacher and I think after you see the breakdown you’ll clearly recognize how the visuals have morphed over time and as new technology has developed. It makes me realize just how exciting the future in cinematography actually is.
