Cinematography is an extension of photography.Though the essentials are the same, Cinematography deals with moving pictures and is more of a combined effort.

It is relatively easier for a photographer to graduate on to become a cinematographer because his basic perceptions are in tune with the visual. Visual art best learnt through a journey of self-discovery.

I have always had great respect and admiration for the earlier generation of cinematographers. who laid the foundation for us to learn and see the world poetically, in terms of light and shadow.
