The title of this post refers to a new section in The Lonely Walkers’ blog in relation to films. We thought it would be interesting talking about some of our favourite films and its photography. We’re not looking for the story (well, it plays an important role, of course, but it’s not what we want to focus on) but its photography. Every single movie has a photography director, every single movie has a special photography depicting the story, featured as a unique character which helps to set the mood and paint it. Most of the times we don’t realize how important it is and in some movies it’s not that important… but in some other it makes us fall in love with it, it makes us say “woow… photography was really good in this movie.”
So THAT’s what we want to talk about: the films in which we felt that, the films that made us melt with it, the films whose photography made us get into the story. The mood tinged with light.
Needless to say that we want to invite you all to talk about your films, you can comment or, if you want to talk about a special one, you can tell us by sending us your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be able to collaborate with the blog!!
In our first “Filming Photography” I’d like to talk about the film based on the Jane Austen’s novel “Pride & Prejudice” directed by Joe Wright. The first time I watched this film I simply fell in love with the light depicted and, although it gives it a more Romantic feeling than what we are used to in Austen’s novels, I think it perfectly accompanies the characters and their feelings (specially Elizabeth’s thoughts)(this looks like taken from a Bronte’s novel rather than Jane Austen’s) (This scene is the starting scene. The first one I saw it I thought “I like this movie and I haven’t seen it yet” only because of this light.)
This film has too many great photography scenes to put them all in here so I recommend you watch it and discover them yourself. Enjoy!
