    Just sign ASC magazine. The electronic version is that cheap and you'll be contributing to their amazing job putting out those wonderful interviews with many great ASC cinematographers.

              Yeah that David Mullen thread is pretty intense in its magnitude. I would also really recommend going to Roger Deakins' forum and having a read through. He did put up some lighting diagrams at one point but he took them down because people were using them as teaching material, which was not the intention.

              What you are looking for though is annoyingly sparse. Kodak released a DVD collection that was shot with students somewhere, where they got cinematographers in to relight scenes they had shot. There was a campfire shot from Dances with Wolves, a boarding-room shot from Dead Poets Society, and some others I can't remember.

                Also go through the 'in production' section of cinematography.com for more David Mullen goodness, eg Threads he's made like:

                  Anyone subscribed and viewing it on a tablet? I just tried once on a smartphone and it was such a pain that I even started to doubt experience on a tablet.

                  As far as I remember you'll also get access to dozens of older digital issues.

                    I'm a member for quite some years now. I sign the printed version which I find cheap for what it offers, even if I live in Europe and the shipping costs alone surpass the printed magazines prices.

                    I sign for 4 years in a row which becomes the cheapest option and with the printed copy they give you the electronic version.

                    I've reached to my iPhone as I type and I can tell you that I have every single ASC mag PDF file in it from 2007 onwards and I regularly scan trough them every day when I'm on the bus or on every other short break from work.

                    They are a breeze to read on the iPhone or iPad if you ask me.

                      Thanks naavt, helpful!
                      I too consider the printed version even if shipping is more than the actual magazine but it's just too good. I'll have to see if there's some advanced pdf reader for android.

                          Great decision really. It's one of the best ways to learn from the pros IMHO
