On the show this week we sit down with cinematographer Wes Cardino to talk about his latest work on Florida Man as well as his early days coming up as an operator on set.
It is always interesting to hear from different perspectives on rising through the ranks on set and this conversation with Wes was no exception. Lots of great nuggets to tak away and try out on your next job.
BE sure to check out more of Wes' work in the links below.
Mastering Exposure - New Course is LIVE
New Course is LIVE starting today!
Course Link: Master 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 improve my ability to recognize various patterns of exposure allowed me to bypass years of on set experience.
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.
