Another week that fell behind but it's never too late to get it posted! Due to life getting in the way I fell a few weeks behind so let's keep this short and get on to the rest, am I right?
So for this week I had two different ideas that I was getting ready to shoot. I was going to shoot a night time traffic shot and then a shot of the Denver skyline. Walking over to where I was going to shoot the shot of traffic my fiance pointed out that the pool at our apartment complex had opened.
Seeing that glowing water ended up trumping any ideas that I had for other shots and I decided to just go with that.
So without further ado, let's check out the shot for week 20.
This week was shot on the Sony a6300 in 4K 24p in SLOG 3 at 10,000 ISO, 1/50 shutter, f11.0 using a Canon 75-300mm lens and of course the adapted B&L Anamorphic projector lens.
I decided to shoot this week at a high ISO to test the low light ability of the camera further while also testing out a different lens with the projector lens. In the end I was really happy with the results.
The biggest challenge with this week was not during the actually filming of this shot, but instead everything that kept me from getting the shot on time. I was really busy and away from home for basically the whole week that I was supposed to film this shot.
That's no real excuse of course, but in all honesty I just kept forgetting to go get the shot until it was too late at night. That or a few of the nights I planned to go film the weather was awful.
But I finally got around to filming it and in the end, waiting like I did led to getting a much better shot than I had planned that wouldn't have been possible when I was supposed to film this shot.
I also really liked that when I film in 4K and output in 4K that means that I actually have to squash the video down rather than stretch it out. It seems to me that this lead to a sharper image than I have previously been able to achieve with the adapted anamorphic set up.
Overall I am just really happy with the way that this week's shot turned out.
Well like I said, I am keeping it short for this post since I am doing 2 more this week, so keep an eye out!
As always, if you are participating in any kind of 52 week photography or cinematography challenge, please share your image for this week (well week 20 that is) in the comments below!
