In the beginning of September I had a great opportunity to spend 2 days in Lucca, IT where the sun was still in it’s full glory and the temperatures where well above +25.

Finally my new cine reel is ready. The shots are taken from several short films shot on RED, Super 16 and the famous Canon 5D/7D.
Last week I was assisting my colleague Richard Jephcote who was DP on a short “The Locksmith”. The film will be released shortly and is intended for festival use around the world. Shot on Canon 7D/550D and lit using 800W tungsten x 3, Dedolight kit & some fluorescent from the top. We split the HDMI […]Continue Reading →
The obvious advantage of shooting with DSLR is outstanding image quality and low light possibilities.

Nice overcast day with some sunshine rays fighting through the clouds. Here are […]Continue Reading →

The film is a story about childhood and also about violence against women at home. The story is told from young boys POV as […]Continue Reading →
I was testing my new Canon EOS 7D with 28-105 kit lens. In particular it’s fast focusing possibilities and 8fps. I must say 8fps was impressive, but I think I have to read the manual more about continues focusing options. Also did some extreme CU of strawberry, and again, i think there is a way […]Continue Reading →
