I like the movies.
I wonder if some of film's appeal might be it's rarified status. Digital has allowed amateurs to achieve professional results. Do you think that this has inspired some to look to film as a point of differentiation from the masses?
Very cool, My grandpa's advice to me was "Save up... good glass will last you a lifetime." love it.
Delays with the metal work.
Thanks Michael - I took your advice and I am very happy with my decision to go with a set of tungsten fresnels. After many hours of experimentation I have been able to roughly approximate the effects I have always admired. The lights are large, heavy and hot but the power and quality of light makes them worth the extra effort. Emotionally, I like that I'm learning to negotiate a traditional technology that has long been an industry standard.
Good to know - thanks Guy.
