Hi guys,

Here are a few frames from my recent shoot for the short film we are working on.
The majority of the film is shot on the BMPCC and the below framegrabs were shot using Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 and Canon 70-200 f/2.8.
Let me know what you think.

I see these images and it makes me want to hear the dialog!

That bottom shot is killer.

Looking forward to it Tomasz.

Absolutely beautiful. I would say they are graded to appear natural and rich. Commercial, clean and not orange/teal. I like very very much.

Ha! EXACTLY!

Hey Tomasz - is that bottom shot of the intense guy from the Canon 70-200M?

Yes, that was my intention. I didn't want to go with a very stylized look, wanted to grade it naturally.

Yes, exactly. From what I remember it was around 120-150mm, with a speed-booster almost wide open.

EDIT

Here's one of the frames from the last shot, if anyone wants to play around with the RAW :)

Tomasz, all the shots look great!

Here is my take on the frame you posted:

19254

Wow, really great work!

Just out of curiosity (and purely for my learning), what tools/approach do you use to make exposure decisions? Loading your dng, the frame seems to be perfectly ETTR.

Thanks for any insights!

BTW, I love that your frames are VERY stylish without being stylized. Classy and avoiding so many cliches.

Thanks man, glad you like it!
First, I expose "normally" to set the ratios with the smallhd monitor and false color, and then for the exposure I just use the built-in zebras and I try to push it to the right as much as possible.
I don't try to match the exposures between shots - it can be easily done in Resolve. I just try to maintain the same ratios.
It really makes a difference. When the blackmagic cameras are pushed hard to the right, the quality of the picture is really stunning.
