04 Aug Still Pictures From Moving Pictures
I’m putting together a proposal for a film shoot in DC and the client asked about the possibility of grabbing stills during the shoot. Sure, I said, we could just set up the 5d2 or the Arca once we’ve got a motion shot all set up. Hell, maybe we could even just grab stills from the Red footage.
Still pictures from a motion camera?!!
Here are a few samples of retouched stills from my Red One. Which has JUST enough resolution for print work. We just might have our Epic-M by the shoot date, too! Even better!!!
There’s a lot of discussion over at RedUser.Net about what nomenclature to use when describing our profession (as a Photographer/Cinematographer) now that the Red Epic is blurring the lines between deliverables.
One suggested new term was “Motion Photographer”
“MoPho” for short. I like it.
