All this information is gold. Having been a one-man band for a great deal of productions, I concur with the approach of shooting for the edit. However, this technique does take some practice (and sometimes a lot of mistakes) before you get it right. It really does help to develop the technique of LOOKING vs SEEING. I find that when Looking at your environment or related subject matter, instead of merely Seeing it, you process a lot more information of the things you See -- which helps you make better decision on what shots will work for the final edit. After a while you learn to really think on-the-fly while shooting out in the field. This goes a long way, too, when paired with Storyboarding.
Cheers Robert Hardy. I do find the information presented here to be very helpful. A lot of the techniques described here do take time to become second-nature for many cinematographers -- so much that they are able to apply the right technique for the right effect within their story. So it's always best to practice, practice, practice.
