I saw the other big sun thread a couple pages back, but I have this very specific shot I need.
A giant sun at dawn just meeting the ground, a big sun closeup with the heatwave effect prominent.
Like the moneyshot you'd see in a national geographic doc..I don't think I could shoot this myself. I'd maybe just buy a dvd from discovery and use a shot that I can manipulate for the context I'm going for? but that's not public domain, and I don't want to pay a paycheck for a shot of the sun either.
Maybe I can shoot it myself from a beach with a jvc-hd100, but getting the natural/closeup heatwave effect is important, you couldn't replicate it with CGI, though I will be blending a CG element into the heatwave (a ship).
I've seen this sun visual before, I think I might have to go stock footage with it somehow.
I know this is specific, but any ideas or helpful links, much appreciated!
