I don't usually start these show notes off with a recommendation to watch some of the work of our featured guest but that is exactly what I am going to do this time.
Jon Joffin ASC is on the show this week and before you listen to the show I highly suggest that you watch some of his work on the sites listed below and check him out on instagram.
Jon produces some phenomenal work and in this episode he shares his process both in prep and on set to get the kind of consistent results he has managed to pull off throughout his career.
Mastering Exposure - New Course is LIVE
The latest course has been live a week now and the feedback has been amazing. It is amazing to hear that the techniques and workflow I have followed my entire career have been so helpful to students this past seven days.
I can't wait to get this in to more people's hands.
Course Link: Mastering Exposure: The Language of Image Creation
Understanding exposure was key to my development as a cinematographer and the first major unlock of knowledge that made a measurable impact on my ability to create images I was happy with.
The system I used to strengthen my understanding of exposure and how to improve my ability to recognize various patterns of exposure gave me an ability to bypass years of on set experience. The tools that I used and still use to this day were simply unavailable to cinematographers up until a very short time ago.
In Mastering Exposure I breakdown my techniques for learning exposure, we go over just how important exposure actually is, and then lay out my workflow from start to finish as to how to use the knowledge you gain from your studies.
I can confidently say that nothing has made a larger impact on my cinematography abilities than my thorough approach to understanding exposure and how to manipulate it in the most efficient way possible.
My hope is the course will be as impactful for you and your career.
