  1. Great !!! Thank you Jason, I must suppose that this option already exists.
  2. Hi, I have seen a few post without reply, and I think it would be a good idea to create a new forum where you can move the post without response and it would be easier that those post have a reply. I hope you understand my bad english.
  3. Hi Ratheesh, It's very interesting that you say about black levels. Is it possible to adjust black level in all digital cameras' or only in profesional cameras: Sony HD900,Varicam.... How does it work? Thanks a lot!
  4. " Pompeya " a film by Roman Polanski is gointg to be shooted in Alicante ( Spain), the place where I am. I'd like to know who is going to be director of photography in this film. Will be Pawel Edelman? Does anybody know?
  5. Hi, I´ve been searching information about Black and white promist and I'm not sure about the difference. In wich situations will be better use Black instead White promist? Could you help me? Thanks.
  6. Absolutely Robert, I'm agree with you in this : " a photographer should be bale to creat his own look as much as he can without going into grading". Sure, but I think you can do things during the shooting thinking in what are you going to do in post-production. You do the magic during the shooting, but you can't discard the post-roduction. Do you know any other color grading programs? Thanks man!!!
  7. Hi, I´m not sure if this is the right section to write this. If it isn´'t, please move it!!! I´m a student from Madrid and I have come to the conclusion that colour grad?? , I mean the "colour correction" after shooting with the computer, is the second tool of a DP, it´s essential The first tool is during the shooting: camera and lighting works. What do you think? So I would like that somenone says me wich computer programs are better for color grading? Does anybody knows the program called " color" from the new Final Cut Studio 2? Is it works good? Thank you people. Alberto .
  8. Thanks a lot to everybody. It´s a pity my bad english because I can´t express my self. As I said It´s a very-low budget short, so I think I can only get panel reflection panel ( but I will talk with the "producer" ). My idea is to shoot in a sunny day, but shoot first the "cloudy shots " earlymorning ,before the sun enter in the park, after that the effect shot and the all sunny shots( the most of the short). DAVID you says: "It may be easier to first show the actor in overcast light, cut-away to a shot of the sun coming out of the clouds, and then cut back to the actor in the real sun." It`s a good idea, but the director wants the effect in the same shot, I mean first It´s cloudy and the sun appears in the same shot. And for the backgrounds I will use black courtains and out of focus maximum as possible. And "Panning the reflector until the sun hits the actor may be good enough to create the fade-up effect. Yeah I thought that, but I was afraid that It will be too evident. But if you say it, I´m absolutely sure that It works. Thanks . Ryan, sorry about 85, I becamed crazy!! And I will underexpose a little ( may be more in post) in cloudy shots and overxpose( just a little ) in sunny shots.
  9. Sorry Michael, you´re right. NICK MULDER, you said : "Is it out of the question that you and the cast/crew simply wait on a cloudy day for the sun to do what you want " No!! My idea is shoot the "cloudy shots " before the sun enter in the park ( only 2 -3 shots), after that shoot the "sunny shots" with the sun backlighting ( most of the short) and then shoot the shot where the sun appears. Do you understand me ' (sorry about my english) But I can´t understand what do you say with this : "Then you wont have to fart around with trying to trick everything 2 and this : " is there any thing to stop you from heading outside right now and trying out what you are suggesting with a stand-in or two ? The gear is borrowed perhaps? " Please, expalin me this with a basic english ,I´m spanish and I can´t understand this!!
  10. I have writted this post at two forums: First Time Film Makers, and Lighting. And Nobody answered me. Please, Could you help me with this? : "...Hi everybody, I´m from Spain, so I`ll try to explain my doubt in my bad english. I have a short as a DP in a park with Sony HD Z1, and It´s a very low-budget short, so I can't use lights. The problem is that I have to do an effect: the day is cloudy and suddenly the sun appears behind a cloud. Most of the short is with the sun shinning, and only a few shots in a cloudy day. So I think that we will shoot the cloudy shots begining the day, before the sun enter in the park( there are a lot of big buildings around). Wich filter I need to correct the light?, because 85 is too much. Or It´s better to do it in post-production because there isn't much diference? The sun appears in a short shot (close-up?) I´ve been thinking( just a little) in the way to do this without lights, in a sunny day and with the sun backlighting : - Using light reflectant panels, 3 options: A- Put it far and bring it near the scene slowly ( may be is too difficult hold the reflection over the actor), and cut the sun light in the background with black cloths. B- Putting ND6 and ND3 gels over the light reflectant panel and remove it slowly: first Nd 6, then Nd 3 sounds crazy? C) Cut the light reflectant panel with black cloths, and remove it slowly. Too evident? What do you think? Thank you Kru. Alberto Díaz Student from Madrid.

  13. What a pity Johnatan !! Internet didn´t works since 13 december ( the day before the shooting ) . So I have read your message right now. But lots of thanks man !!! You get worried about my short, you have searched the "House " episode... cool man!!! And I'm happy because the short has been a success, and I'm happy too because I was the camera and electrician crew, I did all alone ( altough one friend lend me a hand some ahours). And It was my first time on video. Thanks !!!!!!!!
  14. Thank you Michael. I think the fact is that I'm an student , so I'm paying attention to the lights when I watch a film and I always lose the argument of the film. I think a " normal " member of the audience doesn´t realize of changes like the little backlight. Now, I think I'm ready to create my light style, I mean , nothing new but ready for definy what kind of thing s I like to do with the light. Salud !!!
  15. Hi people I've been watching films and paying attention to the light continuity . And I have seen a lot of things that I hadn´t seen when I watch that film last time. And I have seen somethings that I thought that were wrong , but now I saw it at films from good DOP. So I 'm confused. For example : A/ One man sitting in a room with windows at night. In wide shots he hasn´t got a backlight that fills his face with a line, but he has got in close -ups. So Is this right? B/ Two men, one in front of the other : The direction of the light changes !! I mean : Man "A" shot : the back of the man "B" is lighted . Man "B" shot : now back's man "B" is dark. Is it right ? I saw this at "LOST" tv . So, where is the limit of the light continuity? Thank you about your patience
