  • Get Lit: Using Sidelight for a Dramatic Effect « Wide Open Camera
    fortunate enough to get hooked up by Roman France with a studio in New York for this particular interview Here are two fairly similar lighting setups Speed was the key for the first look It s quick and easy and it accomplishes the moody look of the film It looks alot like an Alex Gibney documentary However I felt that it looked like television while I was going for a more cinematic look Because we had a few moments to spare after our interview I relit the way I would have had I had the chance to do it again Every job is learning opportunity and I knew I could have done better I strongly suggest taking every opportunity to experiment and hone your skills Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in the right place at the right time Related Posts Canon Rumors New C100 C500 Canon Cinema Camera At NAB 2012 UPDATE Posted on 10 April 2012 Big Ass Light Test at EVS Posted on 06 August 2012 Five Camera Kit Essentials For 5 Posted on 05 October 2012 Quick Take ikan iLED 312 Bi Color On Camera Light Posted on 22 March 2011 Canon EOS Rebel T4i Has Clean HDMI Out Almost UPDATE Posted on 21 June 2012 Polly Dolly Freewheel Camera Dolly System NAB 2013 Posted on 11 April 2013 Paul I like that lighting set up Thanks dude http twitter com c2camera Chris Collins Glad you like it Sponsors Projects New Product Recent Posts Four Foot

  • Accounting Tips From Michelle Brown. Shoot, Invoice, Get Paid! « Wide Open Camera
    paid Always use an invoice number You can decide what kind of numbering convention to use but this is more important than it seems If you need to inquire about payment it s better to ask for the invoice number rather than try to explain what invoice it is I used to work for a magazine and every creative invoice we received noted the issue it was to be included in Editorial staff will often do this when they pass the invoice on but if you know and you ve already noted it you re a step ahead When you enter the charges on the invoice all you really need is time worked times agreed to rate If you ve worked multiple days it s wise to spread this out for each day If you did track your time and want to include it this is the best place Itemize your charges if they include additional expenses Billable time is different from billable expenses Some clients will want you to include copies of your receipts if you ve expensed certain items This depends on each deal and will most likely be spelled out in the contract Always include total number of hours worked and total due at the bottom of your invoice It sounds like a pain but the easier you make entering the invoice the more likely you ll be paid faster If your invoice looks like an eight year old can understand it it s ready to be sent Collecting the Dough In a perfect world you ll send off your invoice with a W9 it ll be entered and a check will arrive in your mailbox When that doesn t happen don t panic Remember what the terms of your agreement were and even then give some headway When you feel it s been a bit too long reach out to the accounting department first 90 of the time the hold up is there Maybe there was a delay in processing or maybe they had to chase down an approval Sometimes it s just a matter of timing An invoice might come in between pay periods which will cause a delay At my company I only have two pay periods a month If someone misses one of those it s very difficult for me to issue a one off payment If you don t have any contact in the accounting office go ahead and reach out to whoever hired you But do it nicely You want to keep a good relationship with that contact and they probably don t want to be tied up with accounting issues either Sometimes all you need to do is ask for a contact in accounting to find out when you can expect payment If you ve waited and waited and no payment has come you still have options When your invoice is about a month late remember the terms reach out to accounting requesting payment If a month later you re

    level The range is great but to get there Benro uses four separate extensions So for all you whiz kids out there that means twelve steps for every breakdown and set up Not quick We also found it to be a little shaky with a Zeiss 100mm macro for insert shots of text and photos However we had no problem breaking it down and getting it into our ikan Trekker carry on bags The Manfrotto 701HDV fits into a lens hole and the tripod fit right on top A nifty carry case and eleven inch extension is also included Three spiked interchangeable feet are tucked away in the case The Benro Travel Flat tripod worked well for most of our shots and we will certainly bring it along for the next trip I would recommend looking into the CF models if weight is an issue This one can be found here for just under a buck fifty A small price to pay to always have a tripod handy Here is the list of specifications Benro Travel Flat Model Number A1190T Maximum Load 17 6 lbs 8 kg Max Height without Column Extended 52 6 in 1335 mm Folded Length 16 3 in 415 mm Number of Leg Sections 5 Leg Lock Type Anti dust and moisture seal Center Column Separate Included 7 7 to 11 8 variable 0 3 lb Spiked Feet Screw Thread M8 Head Mount Thread Size 3 8 16 Weight 2 4 lbs 1 1 kg Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography
