Photographer Makes Magical Composites Using Hundreds of Shots from Exotic Locations

Photographer Makes Magical Composites Using Hundreds of Shots from Exotic Locations | Celluloid 2020 | Scoop.it

Austrailia-based visual artist Catherine Nelson builds complex floating worlds consisting of hundreds of photographs stitched together.

 

When I embraced the medium of photography, I felt that taking a picture that represented only what was within the frame of the lens wasn’t expressing my personal and inner experience of the world around me. With the eye and training of a painter and with years of experience behind me in film visual effects, I began to take my photos to another level.—Catherine Nelson

6 Filmmaking Tips From Steven Soderbergh

6 Filmmaking Tips From Steven Soderbergh | Celluloid 2020 | Scoop.it

From the Film School Rejects: "Steven Soderbergh is one of the most prolific filmmakers of our era. Though his early retirement is immanent, he’s released more films – and a greater variety of films – in his twenty-three years of directing than some filmmakers helm in a lifetime. Since bursting on the American independent film scene in 1989 with sex, lies, and videotape, Soderbergh has made studio blockbusters and micro-budget experiments, strange remakes and films that blur the line between narrative and documentary, not to mention semi-biopics of public figures as diverse as Spalding Gray, Che Guevara, Erin Brockovich, and Channing Tatum. He’s been a leader in exploring the possibilities of new digital filmmaking technologies, and it seems there isn’t a genre or scale of filmmaking that he hasn’t yet touched."

Apple updates its ProRes White Paper and adds some interesting FCPX performance statistics @FCPdotCO | Celluloid 2020 | Scoop.it

Posted by Peter Wiggins on November 12, 2012

 

"Apple have updated their ProRes White Paper and tucked away are some interesting performance figures for Final Cut Pro X on a Retina Macbook Pro. A great read with some great explanations.


When we first started to read this update to the ProRes White Paper, we just thought it had been given a slight tweak to bring it up to date. Then we realised that some of the testing had been done on FCPX 10.0.6 on a Retina MacBook Pro, so we read on!


Read Apple's ProRes White Paper


We would recommend that everybody should read the publication as it provides some really good background information about ProRes and other codecs. A few things jumped out at us."

DSLR Tutorial: Using ND filters for shooting video

An ND filter improves exposure and depth of field when shooting video.  On a sunny day using a ND filter is like putting a pair of sun glasses on your camera.  On bright days you have less control over exposure due to shutter speed restrictions.  Using ND fiters or graduated filters allows you to limit light coming into the lens and provide you with more control over shutter speed.  The result will be a well balanced expose, true color and better depth of field.

What Exactly is Canon Raw? | CineTechnica | Celluloid 2020 | Scoop.it

The new Canon C500 is just hitting the streets, offering both internal 50 Mbps 422 recording, as well even higher quality outputs. The camera can output HD & 2K in 4:2:2 up to 120p, or 4:4:4 up to 60p, and uncompressed 4K Raw data up to 60p and 120p at half vertical resolution. This Canon Raw data can be recorded using an external recorder like the Codex S or Convergent Design Gemini 4:4:4. However, Canon Raw is unlike any Raw format that we’ve seen before. Canon has a very unique Raw method that deserves some explaining, but first – what is it?

Learning to Use a Graduated Neutral Density Filter for Photography | Celluloid 2020 | Scoop.it

For the author post-capture processing in Lightroom 4 or Photoshop CS6 is a matter of tweaking the RAW image to help recreate what you remembered seeing when you took the shot.  A graduated neutral density filter is used to balance the exposure between the background and foreground of an image. As such, it is an essential tool that every landscape photographer should learn to use early in their career (or hobby) and can help you achieve better color balance and a more accurate shot when the shot is taken.
