Please do not take this the wrong way, but I am amazed at how many Lighting, Film Stock, Camera Choice, Lens & Filter questions are posted without any detail as to the 'Look' that is trying to be achieved. It seems to me the first sentence should be.. "I am trying to get a look like...." "here is what I am using or here is what is available".. from there you can really get some assistance.
Maybe beginners are simply after a clean normally exposed, great looking image.. and will play with various looks in telecine or in post... or they are having difficulty describing the look.. they should state that. It all starts with .. What do you want it to look, feel like? Everything else is meaningless and you are not furthering your craft without addressing that first. After all, we are to previsualize.. then paint with our tools that which we wanted.. to the closest of our ability. Sometime we nail it.. sometimes we learn a hard lesson.. either way we learn and begin to master or craft instead of being a slave to it. Ramiro, you are not alone... I see this all the time and many times when asked "what do you want it to look, feel like?'... there is no answer.
I just thought I would express my observation.
You are absolutely right, forgot to answer that, and is actually the point.It's also not easy to respond, since I think I would need some knowledge in order to explain the look I
I'm an actor and work in soapoperas. well that's exactly what I don't want, perfect light.
I'd like to get somehow film look, not to much light,i like shadows, the house is big, so I can play a lot with DOF.
I'd like to get as close as possible to the final look, trying to avoid manipulating digital files in post,I use Vegas 8.0(same principle with digital audio(I use protools),when you record try to get as close as you can to final mix,eq and comp before convertion)
But I have the chance to go to the house one whole day before the shooting and try different lighting situations.
So if I get the gels and put them on the lights they would somehow get close to daylight right?
Thanks for your time David !!
