I was thrilled to participate with the One Day on Earth organization to help them realize their Your Day, Your City initiative. Out of the several metropolitan areas included in the event, mine was labelled One Day in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Production was between 7am and 4pm Saturday, April 26, 2014. Editing took place during my free time spread out over the following weeks until today, the due date of all submitted materials. I was asked to be an Ambassador for the project so I had a few extra duties, plus the fact that I simply had to actually participate. But, I thought it might be fun, so I dove right in. I had a blast.
Just a simple and quick headshot session this weekend with the lovely Elyssa Rodriguez who is starring as Dorothy in the short film Oz, currently in post. I set up a simple two-Flolights setup and used my favorite APS-C portrait lens, the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, on my T2i. Her hair was darkened in post.
I decided to update my BMCC from 1.5 to 1.5.1 today and thought I’d do a purely unscientific reds test to see if there was a change. There was not. Obviously there is a nice mix of reds, oranges, yellows and a bit of blue and green in the shot and they seem pretty accurate to me, but there is no change between firmwares. I also shot ProRes Film and Video if anyone wants to see those, but my point is not about are the reds less orange, my point is there is no discernible change in color between firmwares.
