After shooting a number of projects now on the 5D, from documentaries to pop promos, I’m fascinated to see how far we can really push this very sensitive and immediate format through minimal, practical and natural lighting to capture this engaging story.
One immediate reference for this approach is The Prestige. The photography in this film felt organic, simple and pure. These are the direct qualities I will seek in both my theoretical and practical approach to capturing Dimensions. I will report in again once I’ve started to test the limits of sensitivity of the camera.
