SKILLS REQUIRED FOR CINEMATOGRAPHY
Having a good artistic eye for photography, or in other words, being able to frame shots and recognize good shots, as any photographer would.
Knowing the technical basics of photography -- how to make light work to your advantage, how to use lenses, and how film speeds and exposures work.
Having knowledge of film-specific photography equipment and techniques, such as film cameras on dollies, handheld cameras, the Steadicam and blue screen. This includes both set-up and operation.
Being experienced with the filmmaking process from preproduction through postproduction, including working with a film house to prepare the final print.
Being able to collaborate with a movie director in developing an artistic vision for a film and then producing it.
Having the flexibility and problem-solving skills to handle production when scenes don't go as planned due to weather, equipment problems, budget limitations or artist changes. This includes being able to make fast, instinctive decisions about which film, technique or equipment works best for a particular scene.
Keeping up with ever-changing advances in film technology and knowing when to shift to or drop in new technology instead of the old.
Being able to manage a budget and staff, and coordinate with other departments like lighting, to keep production running smoothly.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR CINEMATOGRAPHY
Often working with a director of photography, cinematographers prepare the cameras for each scene in a movie; this often includes multiple mounts so that they can get shots from many different angles. They may also use stationary cameras in one area and moving cameras in another in order to get multiple views of the action taking place in the scene.
Digital cameras have become more common in the industry, which makes it easier for cinematographers to get multiple shots with greater clarity. On large movie sets, some cinematographers sit on cranes, having crane operators move them into position as they track scenes with their cameras.
