    EPISODE 106: ATLAS ANAMOPRHICS, YAY OR NAY???

    EPISODE 106: ATLAS ANAMOPRHICS, YAY OR NAY???

    I recently rented the A-Set Anamorphics from Atlas and wanted to provide my review of them for those who are looking at renting them for future projects or possibly purchasing them for your own rental business. Overall the optics are clean, the flares i'm not a huge fan, shooting wide open at a T2 is rough and the lenses don't have a lot of character to them. However, these could all be reasons why you want them for your next project so I hope this episode supports you in that endeavor!

    EPISODE 105: VALUE YOUR WORK, CLIENT PERSPECTIVE

    EPISODE 105: VALUE YOUR WORK, CLIENT PERSPECTIVE

    One of the most prominent qualities i've seen from high level cinematographers in the commercial space has been that clients value their work, A LOT. What does that mean? Simply put, clients have a higher value perception of their work. The level of cinematography, communication and professionalism they bring on set as well as to the visual language of the project have propelled such cinematographers to not only ask but demand the higher rates. In today's episode I want to talk about how important it is for a client/agency to value your overall work in order for you to start growing the business side of your career. And yes, a part of that is leveling up your skills as a cinematographer!

    EPISODE 104: HOW MUCH TO CHARGE FOR POST???

    EPISODE 104: HOW MUCH TO CHARGE FOR POST???

    Do you charge hourly for post production? What about fixed rates, is that easier and more efficient for you/your agency? These are the two most common ways to charge a client for post production services and in today's episode I want to go over both. One may be better for your type of company and I always find it best to compare and contrast two methods rather than believe in one ideology off the bat.

    EPISODE 103: LET’S JUST HAVE A GOOD TIME

    EPISODE 103: LET’S JUST HAVE A GOOD TIME

    One thing I feel gets neglected is happiness, not just ours but everyone involved in a production. As the Cinematographer/DP part of your responsibilities is to set the tone for the day, along with the Director. If you make sure everyone else is happy they'll do the exact same thing for you and that my friends is a great way to usher in a healthy and successful production. On top of that the more good energy you bring the more times your crew, client and agency will want to work with you in the future. Our job isn't just to ensure we're supporting the director with their vision and to create beautiful photography, it's to ensure the entire team, unit, production is successful and if you can pull it off while having a good time on set then I think you've found a recipe for success.

    EPISODE 102: FALSE COLOR REWORKED

    EPISODE 102: FALSE COLOR REWORKED

    False color isn't anything new but the way you look at false color can change over time, I know it has for me. When I first started using false color it was to get a sense of where my key was in the IRE spectrum and if my high lights were clipping. I didn't look at anything else because I wasn't at the level where I could do anything about the rest of the image. Fast forward to 2022 the way I use false color on set to help gauge my ability to create a denser image has changed and I wanted to share that method today!

    EPISODE 101: CINEGEAR 2022 LULL

    EPISODE 101: CINEGEAR 2022 LULL

    Another year, another Cinegear! Though I honestly haven't seen anything worthwhile since Cinegear 2018/2019, this year the turn out was definitely more than last year but the majority of booths are Cinegear already had their time to shine at NAB so nothing "new". The one thing that stood out was the amount of budget friendly equipment from stabilizers, support rigs, lenses etc which is opening up avenues to still create great images at any budget level.
