imran qureshi Posted June 26, 2022 Share Posted June 26, 2022 Hello all, I am focus pulling in a one take music live session. We can do multiple takes. We are going to be shooting wide open on a 25mm DZO vespid prime lens at t2.2 (will close down accordingly if we end up needing a deeper stop for focus). Sensor is 35mm (canon c300mk3). The subject is stationary but the camera starts off wide and tracks forward to a close up. The move will be entirely handheld. I will be using a remote follow focus (nucleus m). I know that for a Dolly move, many focus pullers use the bolt in the middle of one of the front wheels as a reference point to place incremental marks on the floor either based off the lens markings or just 1ft incremental marks. In my case, as it is handheld on an easyrig…should I be using the operators feet as a reference to place floor marks? I was originally thinking I could ask the operator to put a bit of camera tape on both shoes in line with the floor marks so that I could use that as a reference? (Ie, when the tape on either foot aligns with my floor mark, I know to hit my mark). or should I just simply try to eye the floor marks so that its in line with the sensor plane throughout the move? any ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
