The field of film emulation software has some pretty well-established players in both the video and stills worlds. On the still photography side, there’s Google’s Nik Collection software, VSCO’s Film Series of plugins, and a variety of others. On the video side, however, things are… somewhat more complex (as all things video generally are).
For this shoot, I decided to start simply. I began with one light, a Paul C. Buff Einstein light inside a large umbrella. We were shooting in a relatively small studio, however, so the light didn’t completely wrap around the model, leaving a shadow on the wall behind. We wanted almost no shadows – just enough, in fact, to bring out the texture on some of the clothing. The single light delivered a bit too much of a shadow, so we added additional lighting.
The world of macro photography has been an interest for me ever since I got my first camera. That camera was a little Casio point and shoot that was maybe 2 or 3 megapixels. I was out shooting that first day with it and noticed on the mode dial a little flower icon and thought I’d set it to that and go shoot some flowers. I was several feet back from some Clematis (yes, I remember the exact flower) and the camera would not focus. After some trial and error I realized I needed to be closer to get focus…a LOT closer.
SD. HD. Full HD. Quad HD. UHD. 4K. DCI4K. Something-point-something-K. Video resolutions are confusing enough for consumers but as a content creator they are even more confounding. Here at BorrowLenses, we carry cameras that shoot everything from 720p HD all the way out to 6K. That variety can be somewhat confusing when you’re trying to sort out just which camera you need to rent and what resolution to actually shoot at once you’ve rented it. And that’s before you begin diving into the world of aspect ratios, too.
