A cinematographer is responsible for composing each frame in a scene to be shot and deciding the lighting and camera angles according to the requirements of the director. As a cinematographer, you will lead the camera/lighting team and will be involved in the planning and execution of a shoot from the pre-production stage. Lighting is used to change the mood of a scene or to indicate practical aspects such as day or night. The lighting technician arranges all the lighting effects designed by the cinematographer according to the instructions of the chief assistant cameraman. This course blends traditional filmmaking techniques with the latest digital video and film cinematography.

The advertising industry is another avenue where a good, trained hand can look for employment.
