••◊ The Purpose of a Cinematographer

I saw an American Masters documentary about Mike Nichols today and he said one of his early mentors, Elia Kazan, had a saying, "the purpose of a director is to turn psychology into behavior."  That really resonated with me because it also translates to, "the purpose of a cinematographer is to turn psychology into photographs."  It's something for me to remember on each shoot and take to heart.
