Cinematographer Explains 3 Different Camera Lenses | Vanity Fair


  • He kind of looks like Walter White

  • this is really fun

  • Harvey Keitel dressed as Heisenberg

  • Ah found the Epicurious' 4 levels cooking music ... !!!

  • Today I have my final exam in Audiovisual Language. This has helped me a lot.

  • I thought it was Walter White who explain about those cinematography things

  • i really just love vanity fair

  • Awesome lesson!

  • Cinematographer doesnt know angle of view is not determined only by focal length but also by sensor or film size. Good cinematographer.

  • Loved it.

  • i feel bad because this man spent 10 minutes non-stop talking and i still don't understand lmao

  • 🖤 that. thanks!

  • I am proud that i have worked with tom sir 🤗 for a month ..for movie Dhaka.. love his style and he is so kind and down to earth Pearson..

  • I am not sure what Vanity Fair gets out of making these videos but please keep them coming. This is masterclass stuff.

  • 6:11 MWAAAHAHAHA 😂 But all fun aside: this is some great valuable content!

  • Looks like Jeff Goldblum.

  • Thank you for the lesson

  • The ending got me

  • Frank cullotta is that u

  • I am a high school film teacher. I have found many videos that explain one or two of these concepts well, but this is the first video I have found that so perfectly brings so many key aspects of lensing together in one 10-minute tutorial. This is perfect. And most importantly, it doesn't just explain the technical process and results of lens choice, but also emphasizes the importance of these choices when choosing how to creatively tell your story. This will be immensely useful in my classes for years to come when students are investigating visual storytelling. Thanks for this!

  • WOW.very insightful..WOW.

  • Wow I love the way he explains cinematography, I really enjoyed this Vanity Fair vid😍

  • All bad movies with bad cinematography plus that fit is trash

  • Just great!

  • I love how he referred to other characters by their actors names (George, Ryan) but calls Rami, Freddie.

  • Sigel must be insulted with the video's title.

  • wtf- I haven't seen Bohemian Rhapsody but cutting to that close up of Rami Malek it looks like some Dumb & Dumber style comedy.

  • This guy is Heisenberg

  • Forever grateful for such in-depth amazing content !

  • Another Masterpiece.

  • Yesssss borhap

  • The fact that Drive wasn't nominated for cinematography just shows you what a joke the Oscars are!

  • Cool grandpa

  • Right let's make a movie

  • boaring

  • cool glasses. but. um. your bg is sagging. just sayin.

  • This video is soooo fun (and informative)! Great job!

  • I learned more Physics in this video than in high school 😅

  • Wonderful video!

  • Telephoto lenses don't 'compress' space. 'Compressing' depends on the distance between objects and camera. In the same maner wide lenses don't distort sizes of objects.

  • What are those red things on the mike girls 7506s?

  • That backdrop kept distracting me.

  • Wow

  • This is fantastic! Thank you for this content!

  • i use 50mm for everything :D

  • Woah!

  • What a man 6:10

  • 0:25 out of focus!!

  • This is so awesome. Great on camera personality. Please make more

  • What are those glasses?

  • 6:09 Fear and Loathing? 😂😂

  • Thanks for the insight on lenses but just a suggestion, for a pro...your sound quality on this video is very poor. Use a lav mic next time. your music mix is too loud too.

  • Good video, but the BR dolly zoom shot is not a dolly zoom. The background isn’t real. It’s just a zoom in on the background footage. The focal length of the Freddie camera doesn’t change

  • wow such great explanations and examples such a good job :D

  • Now I'm not confused... Thank you...

  • Shoot him in his face.. blow his mind...

  • this was such a great video, the way he explained everything and actually showed examples 👌 very well done

  • The way I understand it, the shorter the focal length, the bigger the nose ;-)

  • How many other people were shook when he said "Uncomfortable claustrophobic"😂😃

  • Bruce Willis
