The art of lighting, composition, and visual communication in a film. Film began as photography, then later someone got the idea to film theatre.

Thus Cinematography is the original and most important aspect of a film.
The cinematography on that new Aronofsky film was beautiful! Such color and form!
The cinematography on that was terrible, shaky, and had no sense of color.
