  Cinematography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the film industry, the cinematographer is responsible for the technical caliber of the images, but also works closely with the director to ensure that the aesthetics are supporting the story being told.
A professional who engages in cinematography, known as a cinematographer or Director of Photography (DP or DOP) makes many creative and interpretive decisions during the course of his or her work, from pre-production, shooting to post-production, all of which affect the overall feel and look of the motion picture.
The cinematographer can select the range of his or her color film stocks: three-color Technicolor yields rich, saturated colors which are very different from Eastman Kodak color strips.

 Cinematographer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cinematographer (from 'cinema photographer') is one photographing with a motion picture camera (the art and science of which is known as cinematography).
The term cinematographer has been a point of contention for some time now; some professionals insist that it only applies when the director of photography and camera operator are the same person, although this is far from being uniformly the case.
Relations between the cinematographer and director vary; in some instances the director will allow the cinematographer complete independence; in others, the director allows little to none, even going so far as to specify aperture and shutter angle.

While Nykvist's name may be most familiar to trivia nuts, hardcore cineastes, and the actors and directors who actually make movies, one could hardly say that his work is obscure.

It was in his early films with Bergman--The Virgin Spring, The Winter Light --that Nykvist first began to forge his reputation as a master of lighting, photographing his scenes with an expressive simplicity that ran counter to the technically slick lighting schemes that is often the norm.
