  1. Hey Tyler. Thanks. I shot this with my Ursa Mini 4.6k. There are quite a few anamorphic shots that I used my Isco ultrastar projection lens. I really like the combo.
  2. So my country went through a second lockdown and I decided to do a second documentary about my own family's experience, with our oldest daughter in e-school, both of us in remote work and a young toddler in need of attention. Hope you guys enjoy it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quZWPkPPx3o
  3. Hey guys, I'm using spot leds behind it such as the aputure 300d. I ended up selling the softbox and bought the angler boombox 48inch. I should get it tomorrow and the diffusion material, from the photos alone seemed a lot more convincing. Anyone has any experience with this softbox? Thanks
  4. Hi guys, I want to replace the cheap cloth that came with my octabox, but I'm undecided between silk or cloth. I want the best possible results on skin tones. Do you guys suggest silk or cloth? Thanks Tiago
  5. Hi AJ, Thanks for your help. In terms of vignetting is the fvd-16a smaller and more prone to it than the HCDNA? My camera is S35 and I can use it in double focus mode without vignetting.
  6. Hi guysI wanted a single focus solution for my Isco Gold because the one I have degrades the image significantly. I wanted the Hardcore DNA as it is supposed to be the best but I can't find a website anywhere. Anyone knows the company's contact?Thanks
  7. I shot this with the HBM. David, the glowing effect on the HBM is fixed, right? It comes from the 1/8 Black Frost, so if I'd shot this using a lighter HBM, the glowing would still be the same, correct?
  8. David, I feel that most modern sensors/lenses need some help to smooth a bit of the digital edge. I love my HBM 1/4 but it does call our attention to the highlights by halating (beautifully I must say). Maybe an Ultracon or a black diff fx would be interesting to try. Even though the Ultracon is not by definition a diffusion filter, I've read about some DPs using the UC2 to better match a Ursa mini to the Alexa.
  9. Hi, I've never used the DSC Labs One Shot chart to get accurate colors as I find a camera such as the Arri Alexa delivers incredibly forgiving footage even in odd lighting circumstances. But not all cameras are as forgiving, so I was thinking of giving this chart a try. Anyone uses it? How is it like in a Davinci Resolve workflow? Thanks
  10. David do you know what (if any) filters are used in netflix shows with a "modern" look such as Dark or Ozark? My feeling everytime I use a HBM or other diffusion filters with halation is that they immediately send me to a period piece or a very specific scene/mood.
  11. David, how would the Black Satin perform here? Closer to the black diff FX or the HBM?
  12. I don't have any experience with tiffen black diffusion fx. What strength should I pick for a close up if the intent is to take the edge off and just make a face look good without loss of apparent sharpness (ie eyes look sharp)? And none of that halation that give the effect away. As for halation with minimal softnening for wide shots, maybe a Hollywood blackmagic is a good choice? Thanks
  13. What would be an example of a good filter to create halation without diffusion in a wide angle (I always feel halation is a good way to hide the digital rolloff in highlights) and what would be a good filter that would do the opposite in a close up? Thanks
  14. Hey guys, In a time of quarantine and trying to live a new kind of "normal", I did a video/documentary of what it's like to work with two kids at home. Important to say that, since I'm doing this at home (and I don't own any lighting), no artificial lighting was used... Hope your like it and leave your feedback here 🙂
