Personal Quote:

[on the 'optimum' T-Stop he likes to work at] I don't normally like to work deeper than an 8, and I never work wider than 2.8 in anamorphic. I feel much more comfortable working at around 4. Shooting wider than 2.8 in anamorphic is pointless, I think, because at that stop there's just not enough information in focus.

Trivia:

Member of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) since 1995. See more »
