"A film is never any good unless the camera is the eye of a poet." Orson Welles
Like how the wind blows to bring comfort from the heat, the camera moves to invoke emotion. It is subtle, but it is there, and it is effective. The camera aids in storytelling. It is not just for capture, it is used to enhance the experience. The way it moves, the way it captures light, the way it frames, and how it captures color all adds to the element of immersion in the story of a film. These elements and more go into the mise en scene of a picture, however, specifically focusing on the mentioned elements in relation to the camera operation; I call it "making the camera talk".
