Given the recent cold front that has forced most of the U.S.A. into winter, I've had a few shoots outdoors and am reminded that I never did find clothes that I thought were the best for cam ops. I have generic base layers for skiing but as an operator in the sports world you are not moving any where near the amount as a winter athlete since we frequently have to hold a shot steady for an extended amount of time and don't have the ability to move around and warm up. Also, I am looking for a good pair of tight, not bulky gloves that can keep your hands warm but still allow you to operate a camera on your shoulder. Any advice on base layers, mid layers, and gloves?
Well I've just had a bit of a shock. I bought some LED light bulbs and normally I get cool white bulbs but this time I bought some warm white as they were on sale and there wasn't a choice. However on getting them I was shocked at how green the output was! It was immediately visible and was much worse than on other lights I have encountered even with flo's. Of the bulbs I bought the little candle style bulbs seemed the worst. The bulb shaped bulbs were still bad however. I put one of the candle style bulbs into a lamp with a shade all around and it lit up quite green and with the addition of some orange gel it became quite bright yellow like you might find in a highlighter pen! Is it the case that warm white is a lot, lot less colour accurate than cool white? The cool white bulbs look a bit blue but I've generally had good experiences with them. I think I will avoid warm white in the future unless it's for a special effect! Freya
Hello, I've been noticing lately in movies, hardly anything is natural color, its either cool, warm ora combonation of the two. I've tried just about everything (from lighting to multiple grading techniques) and can't seem to nail the look and feel of the shots I see. I've included 2 examples of what I'm talking about. The first is a very cool grade from the catching fire trailer (awesome). Somehow the highlights and shadows remain neutral, and it almost looks as if the midtones are a little bit neutral, but somehow it still seems blue. the 2nd picture is a scene from inception with a very orange feel. My question is how are these achieved, is it through grading, lighting, white balance, or a combination of them? Thanks for any advice!
