Written with wit and humor, this book delves into the discipline of the 2D and 3D imagemaker. Everything from the need to maintain a clear point of view and eyeline up to the emotional impact of lens choice and color palette is discussed in this book. By reading this book, you will learn how to avoid shots and angles that are generic and apply the principle of exclusion in order to maintain a rigorous control of the frame. Through this book, you will understand how to drive a story through close-ups and you will learn how composition, selective focus and simple lighting affect the eye of the viewer inside the frame. Above all things, you’ll also learn how to elevate your craft by learning how to challenge your viewers.
