for people who missed chemistry classes ;-)
all the glass (from bottle glass to high quality lanthanum lens glass) in all the world produces in furnaces built from fire resistant bricks that contain the whole bouquet of radioactive elements: caesium, strontium, and etc. therefore my dear friend, when you pure wine from a bottle you're already "intouch" with radioactive elements.
It's understandable why is quality so high.
By the post WWII agreement between coalition members, Russians, as winners in the war, received many industrial objects from Germany as a part of the compensation. One of those objects was Zeiss factory. The whole factory was extracted, loaded on the trains and sent to Russia.
Russians made many developments and improvments since then, but technically core was Zeiss techologies. So, when you buy some Russian lens brands, you buy Zeiss in Soviet "interpretation". Some of those lenses are pretty good.
you have to be a real dummy to buy this. all the footage is different, light on set is different as well, this lut won't help you really unless you do some "wedding" videos and don't care how your footage look like.
better to spend some money on Dan Margulis course or book and you will understand a bit more what's the color correction is.
I think to listen how awesome that you made is good, but useless.
everything in your film / commercial / etc has to tell a story and make an atmosphere. many colorists don't even know what they're trying to achieve.
they scared of everything. to use their tools. to understand what shadows their best friend. to stop heavily breathing on Alexa, F65, film, or they just never worked with it and etc.
she woke up. he's sleeping. you have to express - it's still very much morning.
it's still too early to be up, but she walks very quiet, which means the scene should be dark enough to give an atmosphere.
we barely see her silhouette, we don't see any parasite light on the bed itself, only she. she is mysterious. dp had to think about shadows it but he didn't so you can fix it.http://www.homeyfilms.com/sample5.jpg
second shot, she is in the bathroom. she is sexy, sensual.. her lips. you have to underline it. via mix of unnatural and natural light, make it darker, it will pop up her skin tones, so lips will be main there. shadows, shadows, shadows.http://www.homeyfilms.com/sample2.jpg
third shot, early morning, all of them ready to leave but she is sensual, bright, loving. way brighter shot, colorful, rich brown and black, neutral green white make us stack on her, will make her skin shine. she is beautiful.http://www.homeyfilms.com/sample3.jpg
other shots i didn't like too much. there's no sense for close up. detail was enough.
on medium, or even master it would be even better. and after that any detail. even just lips.
I'm curious what's the brand and the model of the sensor in Alexa 65. "A3X" it's Arri "creation". But original sensor is not Arri actually, they don't build sensors (the same about RED).
Just want to understand how much would cost that sensor itself.
