IN THIS COURSE YOU WILL LEARN: Choosing the correct focal length is something that is barely discussed in much of the cinematic culture. For example, focal lengths that work for still photography do not necessarily work for cinema. In this training course Shane Hurlbut, ASC will teach you how to choose a lens and work with its focal lengths to directly impact how your audience feels. The module includes in depth lens tests, using selective focus, sensors and lenses, how to manipulate perspective and space.
Shane guides you through extensive lens tests with in-depth discussions on many of the high-end and vintage brands he uses, to the current budget friendly lenses available. The articles demonstrate how focal length will assist you in storytelling and Shane’s thought process for choosing a lens – because it is a very personal choice. This module covers glass challenges and solutions, cinema glass versus still glass and the technical aspects of lensing. These are insights DP’s rarely share.
