  1. Hello, When would be a use to film in 4K DCI or 2K DCI (1.90:1)? I apologies if this seems like a obvious answer but I have found a obvious answer and thought It’d be best to ask experienced Camera Crew. Thank you for your time.
  2. It's something that bugs me every time I see it: simple shot, two people are facing each other. However, during the singles, the one previously on the left side of frame is framed on the right, cutting out their scene partner and leaving negative space behind their head. In general, it always looks more natural to me to put someone who is looking frame right on the left, especially in a dialogue. If they are being pensive by themselves, it can work, as it seems to imply they are deep in thought, or maybe the scenery is just that good, but otherwise it strokes me as bad framing.
  3. Here’s another list! http://www.ilovefilmmaking.com/beautiful-movie-shots/ Sometimes they’re fun. :) I thought it might be interesting to post it here.
  4. Hello there, I am new to this forum so hope everyone is okay. I am in my final year at university and my topic of focus is Cinematography. More in depth my focus is Cinematography: How framing and composition can convey a narrative/emotion. I have been doing some research into different styles of art and photography express emotion and their techniques to draw an audience into their work. For example I have been looking into the work of expressionist art work, moving on then into German expressionism which then led to Film Noir (that's all i have got so far in my research). I also hav
  5. Hi everyone, I just want to share these two frames from Michael Bay's Pain & gain movie (Attached images), in which we can notice that there is dark edges on the periphery of those frames (1st one just in the upright side). whatever are they ( matte box, or helicopter leg in the aerial shot) My question is, is this acceptable in filmmaking business !? especially when we are talking about blockbusters like Michael bay's ones ? if yes !!! why should we do this ??
  6. After a summer of not doing much but making lattes for Hollywood folks and making a short film that I ended up not finishing, I feel behind as a student filmmaker. Are there any simple but effective practices that a person with a camera can get in the habit of to improve their skills? Skills such as: framing, camera movement, lighting, and composition. An example I heard of was to film ten second clips displaying dramatic light changes ie: striking a match in a dark room. I hope many can chime in on this!
  7. Hello! I'm on a 60D and have typically cropped everything to 1.85 aspect ratio in post. Lately, we've started cropping to 2.35 because it looks awesome but I'm finding it really difficult to frame shots and visualize the look on the screen during actual shooting without leterboxes in the camera's live view. Like this: http://www.handheldh...s/panascout.jpg I know this is one option: http://static2.filma...04/image013.jpg But I'd really rather not put tape on the camera. I also would like to stay away from physically blocking the lens because we switch primes and they all have differ
