Cinematographers have been using various focal lengths of lenses in creative ways for over a century in order to evoke emotion. Certain lenses pull you into a character in an intimate and revealing close up, some can scare you, while others help frame the breathtaking action sequence. Why are there so many choices, and how are focal lengths used in cinematic photography? During this session we will pose these questions to a renowned cinematographer who has filmed some top Hollywood movie.
