Lighting practically whenever I can when shooting period really helps with authenticity.
Cinematography speaks to everything that women do inherently well: It's multitasking, it's empathy, and it's channeling visuals into human emotion.
Usually, if you notice good cinematography, then the cinematographer's failing. I try to make light feel like it's always motivated and natural in some way and hope that the lighting goes unnoticed.
The cinematographer's basically translating the director's vision into imagery.
I love faces that have freckles. I love faces that have wrinkles. For me, beauty is naturalism, I guess.
I find beauty in imperfection.
Cinematography is so much about instinct and intuition - you want the same range of experience going into behind the camera as what you see in front of it. Your life experience will come through the lens.
Sometimes it just takes a little longer to get to your destination, but if you make sure to enjoy the journey, eventually you will get there.
Life is unpredictable, and I feel, to some extent, lighting and cinematography should be a reflection of that.
Photography was a way for me to freeze time and to capture the moments that were happy and healthy. I saw a photo as a way to go back to a memory if I ever needed to.
