A large part of what makes Steven Spielberg’s movies so memorable is the visuals, with Janusz Kaminski Oscar-winner and long-time cinematographer for the director talking to Vulture about how he achieved some of his iconic shots. Kaminski delves into his mindset during his filming of Spielberg's movies, describing the process on titles such as Schindler’s List, Minority Report, and the recently released Lincoln. Some are helped along with CGI like The Lost World and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull but it’s hard not to admire Kaminski’s skill after reading through his accounts.
