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:

One of four cinematographers to win consecutive Oscars for Best Cinematography (for Legends of the Fall (1994) and Braveheart (1995)). The others are Emmanuel Lubezki, Leon Shamroy and Winton C. Hoch. See more »
