My Gear


  1. Hi to everybody and thanks for reading. I've recently watched Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars, and I've been touched by its photography. I had a question to better understand a detail: in some scenes highlights are a little glowing (there's an interior shot where a subject is placed in from of a window with some venetian blinds that is representative of what I mean, but I can't find a frame on the web to post it in here). How do you think they achieved this kind of look? Maybe with some kind of (Black) Promist filter? I'm not a filter expert (for now!) so I could be wrong. I'll post here some pics captured from the trailer where the look of the image is quite soft. Same question about this too. And maybe, same answer also. Thanks a lot, and cheers from Italy! ​Stefano.
  2. Hey everybody After getting my Black Magic Pocket Cam, and a bunch of accessories, I'm about to start delving into the wonderful world, and perform some lens tests. I have 4 Schneider Prims, and 4 Kern Primes. The gear is almost complete. But I'm stuck in finding a solution for a ND Filter for these little primes. Any suggestions? I'm not sure if there's any that could fit a Matte Box? Not sure if that is still used. Thanks, F
  3. hey. any idea how they did this glowing effect? Smoque filter? http://youtu.be/FZXeB8-PHu4?t=35s thoughts? thanks.
  4. I have a shoot coming up where the director wants it to have that glow look made popular in shows like The West Wing and used recently in the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis. The look in question has blown out, glowing highlights and a generally diffused image. I know how to do this effect in camera with filters and somewhat hard lighting and can also instruct the colorist to apply the effect in post. I've never done a whole show with this look so was wondering what DPs experienced with the look thought was the better method of achieving it.
  5. Hi, im shooting a documentary the next weekend and Im doing some scenes underwater (its about a triathlete) I was wondering if using some kino flo lights (outside the pool, obviously) would help? the pool is outdoors but i bet it will be cloudy. im gonna rent 2 o 3 kino flos anyway for that day so i wasnt sure if i needed them for the pool scene. My second question is about the filters, do i need a red filter on camera or on the lights? That day i would be using: Canon 7d and 60d tokina 11-16 canon 50mm 1.4 canon 24-70 4 GoPro hero 3 black edition dicapac underwater case (other cases are way too expensive) 3x kino flo lights i hope you can help me sorry about my english if I said something wrong gracias!
  6. I am doing a shoot next month and wanna know if there are filters that are more flattering on white skin tones. If there are any gels that are complimentary as far as color please let me know! Thanks!
  7. Hi, I'm having a little research. Usually cinematographers or directors (ask) to use blue tone when lighting night scenes and moonlights effects. I believe it's a creative choice but some would make it their standard. Personally, I don't want to use blue in lighting night/moonlight scenes unless it is a creative decision. I'm discussing about this with some of my friends. I want a little help in finding out the background behind it. Where did the idea came from? Who and what film started it? Any links and information about this? Thanks.
  8. I'm a student filmmaker and am on a set that like most student film sets has a very limited budget so I'm trying to help it streatch as far as we can get it to go. I sew a lot of costumes and such and have already started making things for the set like sandbags out of left over upolstery fabric I had hanging around. I've since started looking around for other fabric based items that I can make to help the group out so we can actually make the short we're working on. This leads me to my questions, I'm trying to figure out what fabrics would be acceptable for making flags, silks and scrims to use in the lighting/grip department. I know flags are typically made out of Duvetyne after reacherching a bunch, but I wanted to know what about the fabric makes it useful as a flag. Could I use a normal black fabric to coat a thicker fabric(I have a lot of colored thick fabrics and thin black fabrics that I could combine)? If that would work, how could I make it flame retardent? Is there a spray that I could buy once and use on all the fabric? What fabrics could I use for silks and nets? I know I'm probably asking a bunch of silly questions, but I'm really trying to help the most that I can. I also have some fabric that I know is film related, but I don't know what it is called or what its uses are or if I could make it into anything the grip and lighting department could use. I've included two (cellphone) pictures of fabric that I have that I know is grip related, but I have no clue what it is or its use. The first one is silver and incredibly reflective on one side and on the other side it is black. The second fabric is black on both sides. Both feel very stiff and almost like plastic. If anyone has other suggestions for things I can build and sew to help the team all advice is appreciated, I'd like to do more than just wardrobe and making some sandbags. Thank everyone in advance for reading the post and for any help offered!
  9. Hello, I am selling my Tiffen 6x6 ND Grad Set. SE 3,6,9, HE 3,6,9. I have had these filters about 6 months and they have spent the whole time in their filter case.
