We all learned about the 180 degree rule back the first week in film school – the on-screen spatial relationship between a character and another character or object within a scene. Like great DOP’s who specialize in cinematography, we ALWAYS strive to follow that common sense rule … but hey .. sometimes we forget. That’s why you need to check out Cinematography Database’s newest composition tutorial. Wether you are a new cinematographer fresh out of film school, or a seasoned DOP with ten years of experience; it would do you good to brush up on your basic camera theory and commit the 180 degree rule to muscle memory!
