I was lucky enough to be asked by the good folk over at News Shooter last week to do a guest post about brindabellas – in particular some of the more technical challenges involved in shooting infra-red motion. From this post – “BRINDABELLAS” – AN INFRARED RED EPIC FILM” ;
“The other fundamental challenge with IR photography in general is that in a less than perfect lighting conditions it often simply doesn’t work at all. Sunny days, blue skies and white clouds are always striking but to shoot usable footage in mist, snow, rain and murky dusk light required a lot experimentation with different filtration and exposures. The footage also required specialised processing in post to transform them from the very flat RAW images to how they look in the film.”
