"As a Director of Photography one should always go into a lighting set-up with a firm plan in mind, but be ready to throw it out the window if necessary. It is often the innumerable chance occurrences that happen as the lighting progresses that are the stuff that brilliance is made up of." -Peter Stein, ASC
