The collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Janusz Kaminski has proven to be one of the most fruitful director/cinematographer relationships in Hollywood history, with the pair working together on 13 films so far.

Their first film together was "Schindler's List" (1993), which won Oscars for Best Picture and Director for Spielberg and Best Cinematography for Kaminski. Their work on "Saving Private Ryan" (1998) reaped similar Oscar glory, with Spielberg again snagging the helmer's laurels and Kaminski claiming the cinematographer's prize.

Their other collaborations: "Amistad" (1997), "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" (1997), "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" (2001), "Minority Report" (2002), "Catch Me If You Can" (2002), "The Terminal" (2004), "War of the Worlds" (2005), "Munich" (2005), "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" (2008), "War Horse" (2011), and now "Lincoln."

Kaminski was also Oscar-nominated for "Amistad," "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" (2007), and "War Horse." He is a likely contender this year for "Lincoln."

Spielberg and Kaminski take a unique approach with each new project, letting the content of the story dictate their style. Kaminski's use of light and color in "Lincoln" places the audience in the period of Civil War-era America, while his use of framing and camera movement helps create tension within the plot.
