Hey guys. 

 

I am currently brainstorming ideas for a commercial I will shoot January. One idea that caught my mind, was doing one long take for the whole commercial. 

 

Now thinking about it, I will have to do several takes, and put it together in post. As this is food related, I was thinking of switching from a normal view into more macro-like shots on the food being cooked. The scene will start from food delivery and go on till its served on the plate.

 

My main concern is how would one go from normal view to really close-up macroshots? For information im shooting on 5d.

Often the transition is hidden in a sped-up / fast push-in or pull-out, so during the motion blur, you can hide a dissolve.

Thats great! More or less what I speculated. Thanks for the input!

Okay, so I did a quick try on this without any lighting set up. I think this approach will definitely work. I'll do some more work to make the actual transition look better.
