BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY


The cinematographer, or Director of Photography (D.P.), is the primary technician who sets the visual mood of the film through the choices they make in lighting, camera moves, and lenses. They help the director to envision the shots, make them the richest they can be, and if they're good enough and memorable enough, they go on to win the Oscar for Best Cinematography of the year.
