Welcome to The Right Lens.  

I feel I owe much of what I learned as a cinematographer from the generous souls who share their knowledge online. To return the blessings, I started this blog to comtribute to the discussion on the art of cinematorgaphy and to reflect on the experiences or pitfalls that I encounter from the set.

I am aware what I share here are not always true. They only reflect my state of mind at a certain point in time of my career. One of my reasons to share my thoughts here is to let my ideas be collided with opposing ones. It is sometimes a joy to be convinced that my ideas are wrong, or that there are more angles to my perspective which I have yet to consider, because whenever I am proven wrong, I am also presented with a whole new perspective to my craft.

That's why I set up a commenting box below each of my blog posts. I look forward to hearing from you.
