Shooting singles (1 reply)
You use 32mm for close up to shoot singles by placing camera in between the actors when you shoot behind the actors from the shoulder singles which focal length do use for it
I doubt that it's so black and white. In the words of Mr. Gordon Willis "you're looking for the formula, there is no formula". That being said, I'm sure Mr. Deakins has a preference/most used focal length for that, but my point is just remember one technique used for one film doesn't fit for every film.
