Cinematographer: Career Information

Although some Cinematographer work on motion picture productions based in the motion picture centers of Mumbai or all over India. They work on different productions for local or regional television studios, or for video production companies.

Cinematography is the art and technology of motion-picture photography. It involves such techniques as the general composition of a scene; the lighting of the set or location; the choice of cameras, lenses, filters, and film stock; the camera angle and movements; and the integration of any special effects. All these concerns may involve a sizable crew on a feature film, headed by a person variously known as the cinematographer, first cameraman, lighting cameraman, or director of photography, whose responsibility is to achieve the photographic images and effects desired by the director.
