Trying to figure out how one could make the lives of aspiring cinematographers easier

Hey everyone!

I have two very simple questions:

1. As an aspiring cinematographer, what are the 2 biggest issues you're dealing with?

2. Regarding cinematography, what would you wish for more than anything else?

Thanks so much in advance - looking forward to reading your answers!

Hello and welcome to the forum!
Any aspiring cinematographer has to deal with technical issues, of having the lightning or camera moves look good, then the workflow of post production. Another struggle is that you might have trouble finding talented cast and crew in the area that is not a filmmaking hotspot such as LA or NYC. Then it is hard to find and secure a location that you actually want. Also, another problem might be the budget, if you are on a low budget, it is hard to make a great movie at high standards.
