Deconstructing Barry Lyndon

This segment examines a scene from a film that took low-light shooting to new levels. Director Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, released in 1975, still holds the title for the lowest f-stop lens used in a film. With the beautifully crafted shots in the film, it’s no surprise that Director of Photography John Alcott won the academy award for best cinematography. Deconstructing Cinematography looks at an incredibly lit scene, using only three candles.
