Hi!

 

This is one of my first postings in this forum, but I just saw a music video and I'm really interested in how this project was realised.

 

https://www.youtube....h?v=Tm-50u4qLe8

 

 

- How did they manage to shoot in the blazing sun but still being overall perfectly exposed? Do you think that there's much grading involved? 

- The grain is fantastic! Is this real grain or an overlay? 

- What lenses / camera / rig do you think was used? The camera seems to be floating like a drone? Or maybe afterwards stabilisation?

 

 

Many thanks in advance, I'm really curious!

The sunlight is pretty frontal, and the ground is concrete, so bouncing some light into faces, although.the shadow from the dog is dark on the ground. It's a pretty,simple arrangement, with modern higher dynamic range keeping highlight details, some adjustment in colour correction to give the required look.

Did I spy a bit of gold reflector bouncing into people's faces?

There were also some high strasoferic clouds that acted as diffusion.
