Well, this is not how to shoot video, but still photographs, and it's been out there for about two weeks now. I wanted to ask you what do you think about it. Certainly none of you need this, but specifically I wanted to know what's up with this "lower the exposure" when shooting during golden hour? In my view, the photo would've looked much better if they let the exposure alone, even if the part of the face are overexposed. (BTW, does that golden hour look a little bit like not yet golden hour? I think that at one point it's as if you can just about see that someone has just warmed up the light a bit in postproduction or the camera changed white balance in that instant.) https://www.apple.com/iphone/photography-how-to/ https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHFlHpPjgk72JW5vfYlzycSgG_Z6EV4hK
I recently enjoyed watching HUMAN by The Movie by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, and was struck by the diverse locations as well as the diverse yet strange unified lighting theme. Using a dark (black) background Bertrand has literally focused all our attention onto the face of the moment. With mostly natural, frontal (sometimes toppish) lighting, which is virtually shadowless, every pore, freckle, line and emotion is bared front and center for us to soak in. Does anyone have any thoughts on the why, how and what on this? Has anyone tried to recreate this? All Images © HUMAN by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. All Rights Reserved.
