An interesting short article on what cinematography is and how it works. It would seem that creating beautiful scenes with a camera would require a lifetime of practice.

I’m sure it takes talent and an eye for natural beauty to be a cinematographer but I also think that sometimes the camera falls into the right place all by itself. So start snapping away with your phone, DSLR camera, or that picture frame you make with your hands; your movie won’t get a budget but it will have an audience, of one.
