The job of the cinematographer is to create the looks and the moods through lighting, choice of colors, and the control of contrast. The cinematographer selects the different instruments, cameras, lenses, filters, lighting units, gels, and diffusion material to achieve this goal. The cinematographer supervises the camera, the grip, and the the electric crews. If the first assistant director is the left arm of the director, the cinematographer is the right hand..

We wanted Supernatural to look like it could happen in real life. For me, there is a strong reality-base bias. Lights are source justified: lamps, candles, daylight coming through a window, flashlights, etc... Also, we didn't want to "glamorize" the action by using slow-motion effects in fight or action scenes. The concept was, and still is, to base the stories in real-life America, so when the "supernatural" occurs, you believe it could spring from the day-to-day life and [it] surprises or frightens you. We wanted the show to feel organic, moody, and, of course, dark.
