Here we go!!
We are back this week with cinematographer Christopher Ross BSC and he is on to talk us through his latest work on the film The Great Escaper.
No two films are alike and as a director of photography you need to be able to shift and morph your approach to get the best images possible. Christopher lays out his approach given the restrictions of the project and guides us through what worked and what didn’t.
It was a pleasure chatting with Christopher and hopefully we can have him on again in the future.

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.

This week on the Patreon Breakdown we are looking at a recent release from Netflix called Pain Hustlers.
Shot by George Richmond this film has quite a look to it and it was fun taking a deep dive into how they were able to make it happen.
Looking at sequences are the number one way I have developed my rolodex of solutions and this breakdown is no different. Always chances to get better even when you aren’t on set and shooting.
