Hey guys,

 

The other day I was watching an interview to Dan Mindel and he was talking about a concept called "Antagonizing the lens". If I am not wrong he's talking about taking light off the front of the lens.

 

This is a part of the interview I'm talking about: 

 

However, it's the first time hearing about this concept so if anybody can give me a more in-depth explanation would be very helpful.

 

Cheers

Marc

I have to say I feel like they're spending a long time and a lot of words explaining something that's actually quite straightforward.

He's taking about the opposite, allow in shot lights to shine into the lens, so that the shot doesn't appear dead. 

 

Of course, much to do about the arts involves expanding the straightforward, it keeps many authors and academics in work.

Shop talk..

 

Quantitive easing = printing money

 

Antagonizing the lens = Purposely add flare 

 

The difference between highlight and flare = about $5,000 a day
