Understanding the language of the lens is key for today’s filmmakers and
cinematographers. Lenses and the different images they produce have the power
to propel story, evoke dramatic/emotional responses from the audience, as well as
give a film a certain aesthetic. Today, interchangeable lens systems are more
accessible than ever due to their decreasing prices and the increasing amounts
of cameras that allow for interchangeable lens use.

While some cinematography books touch on the use of different lenses, this is the
first book to treat the topic with the breadth it commands. Following the same format
of the author’s first book, the very successful, Filmmaker’s Eye: Learning (and
Breaking) the Rules of Cinematic Composition
, Filmmaker’s Eye: Language of
the Lens
shows readers in a visually-stunning way how crucial lens selection is
to the design and intentions of a filmmaker’s visual story. Scenes from a wide range
of movies are shown in 4-color, and then broken down to convey what lens was used,
why it was used, and how the reader can use that lens on their own film to achieve
the look, story, and emotions they seek.
