I agree with Fred.  I was already very experienced in photography when I 
started in film, so shooting wasn’t that difficult, but I found that diving 
myself strict formal limits and editing in the camera was immensely helpful in 
learning the new elements of time and motion in film.  For example: shooting a 
roll in which every shot had to end with a distinct prominent color and the 
next shot had to begin with an object in frame of the same general color: 
documentary, dramatic narrative, or lyrical—you had assigned yourself a 
practical limit which challenged your own creativity and imagination.
