"The hard top-light says something as they start to burn and glow : the look is harsh and contrasty, and the backgrounds start to fall off because so much of your attention is being drawn to the foreground." — Robert Richardson, ASC

It's really no different then putting a spotlight on somebody, but a spotlight isn't conducive to what we generally consider to be proper placement of light on a face. Instead, my light comes very hard from above." 2/2 — Robert Richardson, ASC

(On top-light) "I have no idea what led me to adopt this approach. Personally, I find it a visually engaging look, so I've always been attracted to it. It tends to draw the eye to the characters; 1/2

If the story allows and the director agrees, you light for the reasons that enhance the story, whether they’re psychological or pratical." 2/2 — Robert Richardson, ASC

"I’m not a firm believer that light needs to be motivated at all times. For me, reality and reason are not always dramatic friends. I don’t believe cinematographers have to work within any formal set of rules. 1/2

"In ‘Kill Bill’ we didn’t do much motivated lighting in the classical sense. I was more often trying to emphasize a psychological moment in the action." — Robert Richardson, ASC

"Quentin prefers to start at the beginning of a scene and work his way through it, even if one angle might be repeated at the end of the scene. So, let's say you have a 15-page scene to be filmed over a number of days. 1/3

The weather is never going to be consistent, so there will be mismatches. I tend to want to shoot the actors backlit, knowing that if it gets overcast, backlight looks more like overcast weather than frontal light. 2/3

But sometimes it didn't serve Quentin best to shoot that way. But that's okay. He's not there to make a beautiful-looking picture; he's there to make a great movie, and that's what I signed on for. Always have, always will." 3/3 — Robert Richardson, ASC

In terms of lighting, my input is so minuscule that it really doesn't exist. I love Bob's look. I love his atmosphere. I love his hot pools of light. I love all that shit. It's taken my work to a different level." 2/2 — Quentin Tarantino

"Bob has very strong opinions, but he doesn't editorialize. He just wants to know what's in my head. That's a crazy amount of trust. 1/2
