How would I go about simulating a photo being taken from the photographers POV in a film?
I want the still to be part of the shot, with moving images before and after the still. And I want the supposed camera to be an analogue old school one.
More accurately I'd have to
- superimpose an analogue style viewfinder (I could only find effects for camcorder ones so far)
- simulate the closing of the iris
- add a filter to make the still look more like an analogue photograph
- add a sound effect (at least that's not a problem)
Any tips on how to do this? I'm still in pre-production so all info from setting up the shot to post production would be helpful.
I'll be shooting with a Canon 5D MkII, 50mm prime lens
