Gordon Willis

Gordon Willis is regards as one of the best cinematographer of the 2oth century working on movies like Coppola’s The Godfather and Allen’s Manhattan both of which are incredible movies but what stood out in them for me is the lighting and photography directon of willis, I mean in Manhattan willis was given the task of making a city alive and giving it a personality and in  Godfather he was task with showing the struggles of corrupt men.

What I love about Willies is his dark values he was once dubbed “the master of shadows” and i think it pretty appropriate for his working during my saloon lighting i want to create this look with his dark values
