Learn the Techniques and Styles of Great Cinematographers

Understanding the Cinematography of Emmanuel Lubezki

A quick look at the cinematography techniques and style of Emmanuel Lubezki.

What makes Emmanuel Lubezki a great cinematographer is he adapts his style to the director and movie he is working on. I go through some of his cinematography lighting and camera techniques to help you understand his unique style.

Just to be clear: Emmanuel Lubezki changes his style to suit the movies he shoots. The goal of this video and article is to drum up enthusiasm and a yearning to learn more.


I do not claim this knowledge is 100% accurate. Just think of it as an endorsement of his work. If you want accuracy, look someplace else.

Hello Sareesh ?
I’m a college student studying film from Taiyuan, China. I think the analysis and quality of your video essays is one of the best I have ever seen, because I’m studying this major, so I can better understand that how difficult to make these videos . Thank you for these meaningful video essays you have been making. I will always support your hard work. Emmanuel Lubezki is one of my favorite photographers, and I’ve been greatly appreciated for seeing your video.But unfortunately this video has no subtitles. My English is not very good, haha, I downloaded the automatically generated English subtitles, but have many inaccurate translation so I can’t read consistently. Can you help me check these English translations? Then I can use Google to translate them into Chinese?I hope your video can let more Chinese students understand and learn.Thank you very much!Best wishes to you?
P.S. This is the subtitle download link?
