At one point, I wanted to use a 12mm lens for a shot, but on the spot, that lens proved to be too wrong to select for the shot because the effects it created totally ruined the image. I ended up checking different lenses for the shot, which spoke very badly of my competence in the use of the camera in front of the actors and the crew.

I need to practice a lot in order to make my actions consistent with my concepts. In order to enhance my knowledge and skill in the use of different kinds of lenses, I am particularly concentrating upon the literature about them. I believe that photographers develop their unique and individualistic style of filmmaking by playing with lenses. I have started over from reading the experiences of famous photographers.

Not only that, I have started to analyze the quality of photography of different movie prints, and have become more critical in my evaluation of the cinematography. I tend to think what lens the photographer might have used for a particular scene and try to judge its role in generating the effect the scene maintains. I believe that these exercises are very thought to provoke and sharpening, and thus need a lot of practicing in order to inculcate perfection in me.

I worked with a wide range of actors from kindergarten children to sexagenarians. Being a student, I require a lot of experience in order to excel in my field, so I am eager to practice almost everything and work with everybody. I have also gained experience in acting.
