For the last 6 months or so, I’ve become more and more obsessed with a certain style of cinematography (check the story for an example). Studying the work of those cinematographers, as well as my favorite photographers, and working at it every day has been an enjoyable and often super frustrating process. Being able to recognize cinematic everyday scenes, capture them the right way, then edit them at a certain level to give the feel as though they’re stills from a film. That’s been a huge goal of mine. I wish I could go back to 20 year-old Andrew, slap him in the face, hand him a camera and say, “Study this shit. Learn how to make a career out of it starting now”. It can be intimidating and I wouldn’t even know where to start.
