Book Recommendation (3 replies and 5 comments)
Hello Roger Deakins,

'Painting With Light' by John Alton
"Cinematography: Theory and Practice: Image Making for Cinematographers and Directors" by Blaine Brown - this one's an encyclopedia of information very useful, something I always go back to
And photo books, look into as many photo books as you can
