“I jog on the beach every morning — except today because I had a hangover,” says Roger Deak-ins, on the morning after the world ‘premiere of “Blade Runner 2049.” What’s Deakins also feeling besides post-celebratory? “Relief,” says the English cinematographer known for his breathtaking, painterly style as well as his advice-filled blog, Looking at Light. “It’s two years of your life.

After that, we shot a blue-haired naked woman painted pink who is having a conversation with Ryan [Gosling]. It was funny, the kind of stuff that made us go, “What is this film we’re making?” [laughs] True or false? The red dust Vegas sequence was inspired by a strange climatic event that descended upon Sydney, Australia, in 2009. Actually, it was two things. Once, I
