SATURATION - Colorful Marine Creatures from Indonesia & The Philippines http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17780/saturation-colorful-marine-creatures-from-indonesia-the-philippines Mon, 18 Sep 2017 09:28:47 -0600 NickHope 17780@/talks/discussions A short video of colorful marine creatures from the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia and Anilao in The Philippines. Mostly macro shot with my Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam housing, using the Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens and a Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. Edited in Vegas Pro.

I published at 1080p so I could crop and zoom the 4k footage and incorporate a bit of Ken Burns effect. Hopefully I didn't overdo it. All feedback is welcome.

Contact - The Humpback Whales of Tonga http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/15087/contact-the-humpback-whales-of-tonga Wed, 18 May 2016 05:40:33 -0600 NickHope 15087@/talks/discussions My 2016 video of humpback whales, using 2008 footage.

I tried to convey some of the sense of awe I felt swimming with these magnificent animals. After colour-wrangling, I deinterlaced my 30i HDV footage to 60p (using QTGMC), slowed most of it down 50% (to 30p), and sharpened it a little. There is still life in the old formats if the content is interesting.

Any feedback, positive or negative, is welcome.

We've seen some of this stuff in the past, but now he's made it available as a 4k release -- making him probably the first to sell a 4k feature to the public.

James Wong Howe ASC - google celebrates his 118th birthday http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17630/james-wong-howe-asc-google-celebrates-his-118th-birthday- Mon, 28 Aug 2017 23:34:09 -0600 jleo 17630@/talks/discussions James Wong Howe: The pioneering Hollywood cinematographer’s five most exquisitely lit films /

Celebrated director of photography brought his mastery of light and dark to the service of some of America's very greatest movies

Known for his delicate use of light, Howe worked on 130 films over his long career, taking in everything from lavish costume melodramas to the murky shadows of film noir.

imdb Biography

His was a genuine Horatio Alger "Up From His Bootstraps" narrative, as by 1917 he had graduated from editing room assistant to working as a slate boy on Cecil B. DeMille's pictures. The promotion came when DeMille needed all his camera assistants to man multiple cameras on a film. This left no one to hold the chalkboard identifying each scene as a header as the take is shot on film, so Jimmie was drafted and given the title "fourth assistant cameraman. He endeared himself to DeMille when the director and his production crew were unable to get a canary to sing for a close-up. The fourth assistant cameraman lodged a piece of chewing gum in the bird's beak, and as it moved its beak to try to dislodge the gum, it looked like the canary was singing. DeMille promptly gave Jimmie a 50% raise.

Because of the problem with early orthochromatic film registering blue eyes on screen, Howe was soon promoted to operating cameraman at Paramount (the new name for the Lasky Studio), where his talents were noted. A long-time photography buff, Jimmie Howe enjoyed taking still pictures and made extra money photographing the stars. One of his clients was professional "sweet young thing" Mary Miles Minter, of the William Desmond Taylor shooting scandal, who praised Jimmie's photographs because they made her pale blue eyes, which did not register well on film, look dark. When she asked him if he could replicate the effect on motion picture film, he told her he could, and she offered him a job as her cameraman.

Perhaps the greatest honor that can be bestowed on James Wong Howe is that this master craftsman, a genius of lighting, refutes the auteur theory, which holds that the director solely is "author" of a film. No one could reasonably make that claim on any picture on which Howe was the director of photography.

James Wong Howe, ASC – The Great Cinematographers

In December 1945, as reported in the American Cinematographer, “Stephen Longstreet, a nationally-known novelist, editor, critic and currently a motion picture scenarist, made passing comment that ‘brilliant cameramen are the curse of the business’ in an article appearing in the August issue of the Screen Writers Guild monthly publication The Screen Writer. He generated a quick retort from James Wong Howe, ASC.

Howe: Camera gymnastics and strange angles are not what I would call the stock of a "brilliant cameraman." A man of limitations, director or cameraman, may use these mechanics to cover his thinness of understanding. Some of the most well-known writers possess technical skill and slickness and very little else. A limited writer can do far more harm, or lack of good, than a limited cameraman, because of the power of word and thought. I believe that the best cameraman is one who recognizes the source, the story, as the basis of his work.

North Thailand mountain trekking vlog - DJI OSMO + Rode VideoMicro http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17112/north-thailand-mountain-trekking-vlog-dji-osmo-rode-videomicro Thu, 08 Jun 2017 02:47:22 -0600 NickHope 17112@/talks/discussions I've recently started making some vlogs of mountain treks in north Thailand; a completely new diversion from my usual underwater videos.

This is the latest one from the summit of Doi Pha Hom Pok, Thailand's 2nd-highest mountain, followed by a pleasant descent along the National Park's nature trail.

Shot with a DJI OSMO + Rode VideoMicro, and a Sony RX100 mk1, edited in VEGAS Pro. It was the first outing with the VideoMicro and I am very impressed, although it can be a bit limiting for dialog as it is so directional.

I would appreciate any feedback.

FEEDBACK ASKED: Working as a camerawoman and editor on music videos http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11911/feedback-asked-working-as-a-camerawoman-and-editor-on-music-videos Sat, 06 Dec 2014 17:40:12 -0700 dlzn 11911@/talks/discussions I'm currently working as a videographer for like 10 months right now. Mostly 'specialized' in doing guerrilla style music videos. My goal is to achieve the high budget look, with the low budget costs (don't we all).

Gear used on both videos:

  • Panasonic GH2 cam with flowmotion hack
  • Two Minolta MD lenses, 28mm F1.8 and 50mm F.17
  • Sigma 19mm F2.8
  • Mostly shot with: a rig, tripod, table slider and handheld

My goal is to eventually work more with commercial artists and especially to learn as much as possible about cinematography and cinematic aspects used in music videos.

Would love to receive some feedback on both videos!

Cheers,

D

GH4 Astrophotography (Milky Way) http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/11557/gh4-astrophotography-milky-way Tue, 14 Oct 2014 17:12:31 -0600 albertdros 11557@/talks/discussions With the upcoming wide angle beauties I can't wait to get a good one for astrophotography. I was in La Palma last week and I took a good shot of the milky way. Had to stitch it together as my fastest lens wasn't really wide (25mm 1.4). Turned out pretty well still. Did anyone make any milky way shots with the GH4? I can't find a lot myself, or some very crappy ones.

Thoughts and comments are appreciated :)
