The Cinematography Of The Dark Knight | Keeping It Real
Keeping It Real

"What got me through was the approach that I had taken on Chris’ other films, which was to keep it very much grounded in reality, and keep the lighting very natural. My approach was to go into real kind of urban environments and look at the textures and lights, in places like Chicago and London, and try to get inspiration for what would be the look of the film. I was in Chicago looking at the orange from the sodium lights, and it looked real and gritty, so I started doing tests in those sorts of environments to kind of capture that look. I carried that throughout all the exterior work, and the look of the film began to evolve from there."
