The Library
is list of handy resources useful for creating cinematography-related metas or satisfying the pretty picture addiction. Need screen caps?  Have a burning desire to know what color the motel room in 1x03 was or how many pairs of shoes Dean owns? Crave a pretty shot to get the brain thinking? Or perhaps you want to brush up on the more technical aspects of cinematography and film analysis. Peruse the stacks and whoop loudly.
