Go behind "Behind the Lens" with author Jay Holben

Get A Further Look Behind the Lens, 11 chapters of new content not featured in Holben’s new title.

Behind the Lens FreeBook Since completing Behind the Lens: Dispatches from the Cinematographic Trenches, I have continued to author a number of columns and give a number of lectures on the art and science of cinematography. I decided to collect a handful of these additional pieces that were not included in the book. I hope that they, along with the 70+ articles compiled in the book, help to illuminate your path to telling fantastic stories in the greatest art form yet known to man: motion pictures.

Happy shooting!
