Cinematography and photography go hand-in-hand but, surprisingly, I didn’t discover my passion for motion pictures until about two years after realizing my passion for photography. That could’ve been for various reasons such as I didn’t possess a camera that recorded video when I discovered my love for photography, and the fact I didn’t have access to video editing software until taking a filmmaking class my sophomore year in college and was granted access to their cameras and computer lab. Whether those reasons heavily influenced my actions or not, I developed an intense passion for cinematography during the experience that was greater than what felt when creating little short slide shows and videos in Windows Movie Maker as kid on family members computers.
