Light, Camera, Aesthetics! Journey with me through film aesthetics as we analyze their cinematography and genres.
I began making this list of films because I love to study cinematography in film in hopes to recreate shots with my own camera. But I found while researching that they all seem to fall under a certain category of one of the popular aesthetics. I made a blog three years ago discussing the revival of aesthetic trends in 2020. This time I will be analyzing those same aesthetics through a cinematic lens.
What a better place to start then with the ethereal aesthetic. Most of the cinematography that we consider to be the most “aesthetic” are those that are beautiful. Each of these films are filled with scenes that feel like a painting. The first film on the list is a little bit too literal haha.
