    This is one of the best resources for people wanting to explore into the depth of cinematography.
    quick question, if you don’t mind. did you know beforehand which f stop you wanted to use? or do you make that call depending on the amount of light you had coming through the back windows?

    p.s. finally caught up with the podcast. you are the man.
