Cinematography: Killing Them Softly

Continuing on my rave for Killing Them Softly’s visual style (of which I would happy put in the same calibre as Scorsese’s Taxi Driver or Goodfellas), here is an article in American Cinematographer that discusses with Cinematographer Greig Fraser the approach taken to creating the aesthetics of the film.  I find the discussion on the manipulation of lenses to achieve specific bokeh incredible as well Frasers discussion of lighting looking beyond simply its effect on the aesthetics of film but also considerations like functionality and speed of setup.  In relation to light, Greig’s use of multiple lights soft lights to create low contrast, sourceless scene with a few directional hard lights to add depth and clarity exactly what I want to do.
