Wise words from cinematographer John Alton’s
“Lighting strives to bring out the following values:

1. Orientation – to enable the audience to see where the story is taking place.

3. Pictorial beauty, aesthetic pleasure.
4. Depth, perspective, third dimensional illusion.”
From John Alton’s “Painting With Light
