Broke my RED virginity last night DPing for my bro @yeahitsmeji. To say I’m shattered would be an understatement. Everything about this camera, rig and grip is heavy duty. Going in for part two later today.

Creating shadows using gobos/cookies are my thing! Graded grabs from a recent shoot I did with dope fashion photographer

Playing Director + DP + Gaffer + Production Designer is stressful! Great location though!

Coloured Gels, Moving Lights and Magic Lantern RAW

This is the first music video I shot using the Magic Lantern RAW hack and what an experience it was. It was stressful because we were burning through cards (recycling six 64GB CF cards) during shoot due to the overcranked (slow motion) shots. I think we had 512GB of RAW footage after the shoot.

I was an interesting shoot to block. It was shot in the afternoon we used a bunch of Correx to block out the sunlight and haze up the whole bar to give it that smokey look and feel. Bar a few hiccups on the day, I’m pretty pleased with video.

I love motion. Something has to be moving to a motion, whether it’s the camera, the subject or the LIGHT!

Anamorphic footage is just beautiful. In the world of digital, these lens create oil paintings… the oval bokeh resemble the smearing of brush strokes from a paintbrush! They give your work a character!

Obligatory screenshot from today’s test.
So I crashed my friend @niran7’s photoshoot today to give my newly acquired anamorphic lens adapter a field test (I hate tests with trees and plants, I want to shoot people!!!). It was a nightmare! Ok, let me rephrase, the dual focusing required to make this badboy work is practically impossible. Racking focus is impossible!
So, what’s the trick I learnt? Find your focus point i.e. 3ft, and stick to it. Move about and always keep that distance constant!
Shooting with anamorphic lens adapter is stress… clamping, step rings, rigging, diopters, stretching, de-squeezing, editing is PAINFUL, however, you know what makes it worth it… that quaint look it gives your picture, nothing else can give you that… no effect in POST, only possible in camera with an anamorphic lens and I love it!!!!
