Announcing New S&A Column - Ask Cybel The DP (Cinematographer Extraordinaire)
3
Cybel

A reminder for those who may have missed my initial announcement 2 weeks ago... submit your questions to Cybel now... or later. Just do it! Read the details below.

Her much-anticipated monthly columns on all things cinematography, have contributed much to this blog's success in a myriad of ways, since she started penning them in 2012, much to the appreciation and education of the many who read each and everyone - the two most popular likely being "The Art of Lighting Dark Skin for Film and HD" and "A Cinematographer’s Plea to the Budding Film Auteur: Move Your Camera." 

Cybel Martin's pieces have been so widely-read, so much that even the late Roger Ebert, before his death last year, shared one of them on Twitter, which we were all incredibly appreciative of, given the many hundreds-of-thousands of followers he has. Needless to say, that specific post was at the top of the most visited S&A articles for that year (2012). 

Cybel has already covered a lot of ground since her first post, and in order to assist in ensuring that she continues to inform and delight, we both agreed that a bi-monthly column - in which she'll essentially hold court, fielding specific questions from YOU, the reader - was a great idea!

So, you're encouraged to email any cinematography-related questions (whether you're a pro filmmaker, or just getting started, or somewhere between) to Cybel at AskCybel@gmail.com. I'm sure she'll really appreciate it if you kept your questions direct and professional. 

She'll then publish bimonthly posts, answering as many questions posed as she's able to. 

Obviously, your participation is necessary to maintain this new series; so don't hesitate to use it, otherwise, it'll go away!

This is something we've never done before, so we might make adjustments along the way, if necessary, as engagement evolves.

In the meantime, "Ask Cybel" at AskCybel@gmail.com.
