How to Use Film Lamp to Make Film Sensory Pictures
One day in 1872, Stanford and Cohen were arguing in a California hotel about whether their hooves landed while the horse was running.
Photographer McBridge placed 24 cameras and 24 stakes on the runway to let the horses run, tripping 24 leads in turn, and pulling 24 cameras to take 24 photos.
The first film in the world was born after a cut.
Today, film has become the strongest industry in the whole art ecology. In graphic photography, a large project is mostly the installation of live scenes, and for the sake of the film, 40,000 square meters of "roof" will be set up to shoot only "roof" scenes.
The artistic expression in So films tends to be more exquisite, which explains why good graphic photographers are very enthusiastic about the tone of the film, such as lighting, emotional orientation, narrative, and white sketch.
All these premises can hardly be separated from the film and television lights (often on).
More than one instructor, including fashion photographer Xiao Gang, said that sometimes, the film and television lights can bring you what you want, but the flash can not give the picture effect.
For example, what Mr. Xiaogang explained in the third course was the movie-like pictures of his bar atmosphere. How does the film and television lamp match the sunshine spot, just put the story mood; a kind of film tone slightly similar to Hou Xiaoxian.
Tonight, I'd like to share with you.
"How to use the film lamp to make the film impression picture?"
"Big Light Ratio" Describes Storytelling
The visual convention of the film sense picture is that a frame of picture can run through the story and theme before and after.
It is suggested that you go to see American Westerns and some black movies, such as Lost Lover, which typically use the "Big Light Ratio" on visual symbols.
The hardness and softness of the lamp are basically the same as that of the noon sun (of course, the level of the sun is not comparable to that of the lamp), so we just need to put a 4K film lamp outside the window (which requires a set in the shed or a room on the first floor).
4K refers to dysprosium lamp, because the color temperature around 5800 is close to the sun, and the average color temperature of sunlight at noon is 5500 K.
Especially the lamp is painted because we shoot directly with the scene light, any light in the scene will have a great impact on the picture, so it is better to turn on the lamp.
What about the lights on the faces of the characters?
By the way, there are many kinds of TV and film lamps, dysprosium lamps, Kino... We recommend the LED spotlight used by Mr. Guo Zi in our online series of lessons in the third issue. The brand looks like an eagle (a group of students actually placed an order at that time, regretting not having pulled a business or something).
It has a high cost performance and can adjust the color temperature, which is relatively stable; unlike dysprosium lamp, which needs several minutes to turn on, the color temperature and light value can be stable, and it is not as easy to break down as tungsten filament lamp.
Scene and props to "talk"
White shed can show the sense of film pictures, but the real background seems easier for you to tell stories, as above.
In the foreground picture, the hand with half a cigarette, the high heels thrown away by the bed, the lip print on the wine cup, etc. These elaborate prop arrangements immediately increase the amount of photo information.
Just finished quarrelling? An unpleasant conversation? Maybe more than love? Maybe women have secret identities? The hand with half a cigarette seems to save all the narration.
Cold and warm contrast is used to match the details, and the relationship between colors is also trying to pursue gorgeousness. Lighting and tone changes depict the change of the characters'psychological mood, which matches the change of the atmosphere of the story.
"Depth of Field" Enhances Narrative Fluency
Simply put, "depth of field" can create a virtual reality to match the composition, guide the focus, create a sense of space to highlight the information that the viewer wants to see.
As shown above, shallow depth of field is used to blur the background, including cigarettes. That is to say, don't look at anything else! ____________ Look only at the subject.
"Hierarchical Sense" Creates Senior Sense
"Big light ratio" at the same time, the sense of film screen also needs rich visual levels to create a high-level sense, it can show the depth of space. For example, contrast between light and shade, especially the gradual transition from shade to light.
Although we need black to tell stories, we also have to avoid the dark part of the picture or the overall high brightness; otherwise, the picture will appear to lack levels and details, making people feel very advanced.
"Granular Sense" of Simulated Film
Particle sensation is the common product of the chemical reaction of printing and printing with the unique silver salt sensitization of the film.
To put it more elegantly, it is equivalent to visual breathing. Sometimes people's eyes can not reach that high-definition, so special high-definition pictures lose their true feelings.
But when we simulate the "granular feeling", we should pay attention to that it is not evenly distributed in the picture, the dark particles are often thicker, and the bright part is usually slightly finer. The specific methods are as follows:
Create a new "layer" above the screen and select the mode "soft light" and "fill soft neutral color". Add more noise to the new layer.
In this way, the color varies with the tone of the film, and it is also convenient for us to erase some highlights manually.
"Tone Tendency" for Score
Every photographer has his own unique tone and tonal preferences, and stylized color has become part of the story.
Tones are contained in shadows and light; if light ratio, level, etc. Every aspect has been well controlled, so you just need to add a little color tendency according to aesthetic accomplishment, and then use color contrast to increase the sense of space in the picture. Different people have different opinions.
Like the above picture, the dark part of the picture is added.
