Cinematography includes technical elements, such as camera, lens, film stock, and lighting, and more aesthetic concerns, such as camera angle, framing, duration of shot, distance, and movement. The member of a film crew who is responsible forcinematography is known as the cinematographer, or director of photography.

This is important in cinematography because it is the lighting that contributes to the right kind of images. When the lighting is right, it evokes the right emotions that a director would love to achieve. Thus, unless the lighting is right a film does not express the right emotions required in a particular scene. Professional Videographers in DC have the knack of choosing the right lighting for the right setting and will make a particular scene look as good as it can.
