Cinematography: Theory and Practice - Image Making for Cinematographers and Directors from Focal Press was written by Blain Brown and teaches you not only about the equipment and technology, but also about the concepts and thought processes that will enable you to shoot professionally, efficiently, and with artistic mastery. This book is illustrated and covers the entire range of the profession. It is not just a comprehensive guide to current professional practice; it goes beyond to explain the theory behind the practice, so you understand how the rules came about and when it's appropriate to break them. In addition, directors will benefit from the book's focus on the body of knowledge they should share with their director of photography.

This book presents the basics and beyond, employing clear explanations of standard practice together with substantial illustrations and diagrams to reveal the real world of film production. Covering the most up-to-date information on film/digital interface, new formats, the latest cranes, camera support and other equipment, it also illustrates classic tried and true methods.

The author Blain Brown began his career in New York as a commercial still photographer before starting in the film business. After working as a gaffer, he began his cinematographer career working primarily on commercials and music videos. He has been Director of Photography on 14 feature films as well as national commercials, promotional films, industrials, music videos and documentaries. He has worked in many states in the U.S. as well as Mexico, Canada, India, Italy, France, the Philippines and Jordan. His experience includes 35mm and 16mm projects, as well as 24P High Def, DigiBeta, BetaSP and DV. He has taught courses in storytelling and visual communication, and his books include A Sense of Place; Motion Picture and Video Lighting and The Filmmaker's Pocket Reference.
