I'm trying to achieve this kind of look on a video I'm shootingIn particular the black and white shots. So far my results have been radically different; my video is way too crispy and does not have "that" look at all.
I've made some observations on the video so far (always talking about the black and white shots):
- Either static (very stable) or on a slider, but not "hand-held" looking.
- Blacks and whites are blown out a lot of the times except on her face.
- The main light seems to be coming from a circular diffused source with small accents here and there.
Other than that I can't think of anything else. And of course there's the always sought after grainy look which I tried to achieve with different kinds of plugins to no avail.
By the way, I'm shooting with a Canon 7D with a shoulder stabilizer and prime lenses. I'm also using a variable ND filter. The lenes are professional photography lenses. I'm shooting HD at 30fps always taking care of using the lowest possible ISO and the same shutter speed of 1/60. Of course I understand this might be somewhat irrelevant if I don't post my results as a way of comparison (which unfortunately I can't) so I understand if answers are not very precise.
What things should I consider/do to get a result similar to that of the video?
