Setting a Custom White Balance
By: Richard Harrington on Jul 23, 2013 at 8:20:00 pm

While White Balance presets and Auto White Balance can be quite useful, many choose to manually set the white balance on their cameras. This is a useful approach if you need to compensate for when multiple lighting sources are mixed together in the same scene. It is also a way to warm or cool a shot for stylistic purposes. If you want to work numerically, you can use these numbers in degrees Kelvin as a guide. 1,700K Match flame 1,850K Candle flame 2,700 3,300K Incandescent lightbulb 3,400K Studio lamps 4,100K Moonlight 5,000K Horizon daylight 5,500 6,000K Typical daylight, electronic flash...

Using the Right White Balance Preset
By: Richard Harrington on Jul 18, 2013 at 8:20:00 pm

The White Balance setting on your camera is one of the most important choices to make. This control can be used to neutralize any color cast in an image and to set the overall color (or tone) for the scene. White is most often used as a reference point because it is the perfect blend of all the color channels. While many are perfectly content to shoot in an Auto White Balance setting this can lead to extra work in post. Changes in lighting conditions (such as clouds passing overhead) can create variations in skin tones or subjects that just...

Want great shots? Make sure you have at least one prime lens
By: Richard Harrington on Jul 13, 2013 at 8:19:00 pm

When you bought your first DSLR, it likely came with a zoom lens. This style of lens makes it easy to get a wider range of coverage with just a quick turn of the wrist. Many prefer this flexibility versus having to actually move their feet to get the shot. So why go old school and choose a prime lens that only offers a single focal length? It s all about aperture . Here are a few reasons to consider. Most prime lenses offer apertures that open as far f/1.2 to f/2. These wider opening can let in more light...

Nora Armani on Nonviolence in Film

Rated SR for Socially Relevant Nora Armani, founding artistic director for the March 2014 film festival titled “Rated SR for Socially Relevant Film Festival New York,” talked to The Filmmaker Lifestyle recently after returning from Cannes and Rome. Armani advocates nonviolence in filmmaking through the development of “positive human stories.” She sees this as an alternative to the “proliferation of violence, crime, drugs and social ills in today’s movie industry.” “Personally for me, non-violent story telling means not only the absence of obvious scenes of violence and excessively graphic scenes of murder, blood, physical assault, weapons, artillery, human mutilations and...

Tips for Happy Shared Storage Workflows
By: Steve Modica on Jun 24, 2013 at 12:45:15 pm

1. When you have lots of media coming in from various cameras to your shared storage, make sure you are ingesting that media using appropriate software. We have seen a few cases where people are dragging files in from the camera using the Finder, rather than the camera vendors import software. When you do this, the media can sometimes have the "User Immutable" flag set. This flag prevents users from accidentally deleting files, even if they have appropriate permissions. You can see this flag via Right Click->get info. It's the "Locked" flag. While this makes sense if the media is...
