i come to you, my more experienced peers for advice...
Coming from the mini DV world, I'm about to do a shoot for a short film using prime lenses. I've tried to read as much as I can (i buy american cinematographer etc etc & wikipedia is excellent for F-Stop/T-Stop explanations) before diving in on using them... I'm a little scared I'm going to end up with dark & out of focus rushes.
So I just want to ask though at the risk of being bludgeoned to death: what are you doing when you use a tape measure and measure how far away something is from the camera? Once you have that measurement, what are you adjusting on the lens? How does that help you focus/pull focus????? I can't find a 'how to' online anywhere...
Any advice/tips for a virgin prime lens shooter would be appreciated!
go on... pop my cherry. :love:
PS: Shooting with HVX202 & P+S Technik Mini 35 adaptor.. can't wait to use RED, but not booked out for the weekend I am shooting :waaa:
