Topics I've Started

Orange sticks, what did camera operators use them for?

11 October 2018 - 12:14 PM

I was reading the year 2000 edition of the Kodak cinematography field guide and among the essential supplies for a ditty bag it listed orange sticks, which I believe are thin, 4- or 5-inch long sticks used by manicurists. They have tapered ends.  

 

Is that what Kodak is talking about? If so, does anyone know how camera operators and cinematographers used them? Do they have any relevance today? 

 


Setting an Obie

20 July 2018 - 07:41 PM

I just want to doublecheck that that an Obie goes directly over the center of the lens and it should be as close to the top of the lens as possible. None of the usual offsetting it to get proper 11 oclock catchlights, right?
And what is a good starting place in terms of the number of stops above or below the key light?
Thank you for your help.
