How to Create a Vintage Look in a Digital World

first_imgLearn how to create an authentic period look from the cinematographers behind Fargo and Stranger Things.  Cover image via Keslow Camera.Dana Gonzales, ASC recently spoke about the light sources he used filming Season Two of Fargo. For a series set in the ’60s, he researched and found that the sodium vapor street lamps were not period accurate. He and his lighting team then fit all the street lamps — and other practical sources — with warm tungsten bulbs to match the color of light that would have been appropriate for the period.In search of period-perfect nighttime ambience, Gonzales and his team replaced every sodium-lamp streetlight in the Canadian town standing in for Luverne, Minn., where hapless butcher Ed and his beautician wife, Peggy, have their shops.We changed the bulbs of that whole street back to warm tungsten lights. I went to great lengths creating a mood with this kind of lighting because it pulls the audience into the world when the story takes place. People come up to me all the time and say, ‘Fargo reminds me of this street I used to live on in the ’70s without knowing why.’ Well, a lot of that feeling has to do with the color of the light.LensesVintage lenses are hot right now. Everything from Kowa Anamorphics and Canon K-35s are helping to provide this vintage look in the digital age. Each lens has unique characteristics. Even modern lenses can offer some vintage characteristics. For this reason, it’s always wise to test a variety of lenses if you’re going after a certain look. This is exactly what Stranger Things cinematographer Tim Ives did when creating the look of the show.I found the Leica had a flatness and smoothness and roundness to them, which made the skin tone just beautiful and had that ’80s feel to them. We wanted the contrast and did not want it to feel flat and overlit. I wanted it to be dark. This is a horror fantasy show and wanted the details to be in the shadows.FiltrationFiltration can play a huge role in achieving a vintage or period look. One of my personal favorites is Black ProMist diffusion for achieving a vintage vibe. It introduces a beautiful halation to the images and gives the shadows a pleasant creaminess while still maintaining contrast. It’s also a great way to soften up sharp digital images but maintain the sharpness in the eyes to create a perfect balance. Take a look at the video below to catch a glimpse at what the different strengths of Black ProMist can offer.Art DepartmentFilmmaking is a team sport. One of the most important things to consider when achieving a period look is to work closely with the art department to achieve the desired outcome. No matter what camera and lens combination you use as a cinematographer, if the art isn’t period accurate, it will never sell the setting to an audience. Here’s what Tim Ives had to say about working with the art department of the show:Chris Trujillo’s sets were just amazing. The love and care he put into them is what you see on the screen … Then you look at other departments, like hair and make-up and wardrobe. The hair was exactly how it would be in the ’80s. Everything we put in front of the camera really had the essence of those ’80s things we really love.There are a lot of components that go into selling a period film. However, these four avenues will offer a great start on the path to achieving your desired look.What techniques do you use to achieve a period look? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more

Sachin Tendulkar opts out of Lanka tour, Sehwag and Zaheer back in team

first_imgThe fit-again duo of opening batsman Virender Sehwag and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan on Wednesday made a comeback but Sachin Tendulkar opted out from India’s 15-member cricket squad for the five one-dayers and a Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka, starting July 21.Tendulkar, who is now a Rajya Sabha member, was a part of the squad for the Asia Cup in March — India’s last ODI assignment — where he completed his 100th international century but decided to opt out of Sri Lanka tour.Watch Sachin’s 100 tons in picturesYoung Mumbai batsman Ajinkya Rahane has replaced Tendulkar in the side. The other change from the side that played in the Asia Cup is the inclusion of left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha in place of out-of-form all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.The Kris Srikkanth-led selection committee, which picked the squad in a meeting here, also decided to replace Praveen Kumar with Zaheer’s pace understudy Umesh Yadav.”We have the best available team. Sachin is not available. I think it is a very good side which has very strong batting line-up and good bowlers and we are confident that it will do well in Sri Lanka,” chairman of selection committee Krishnamachari Srikkanth told reporters after announcing the squad.There was no place for feisty off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who endured indifferent form during the IPL and has now signed up with English county side Essex, as the selectors continued to ignore him while Rahul Sahrma was retained in the side. The team will thus have three spinners on low-bouncing and spinning tracks in Sri Lanka.advertisementThe team will also have seven specialist batsmen, four seamers and a wicketkeeper in captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.The rest of the squad, to be led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, remains the same with the selectors retaining Virat Kohli as vice-captain, a position that the Delhi youngster took from opener Gautam Gambhir during the Asia Cup.Squad:M S Dhoni (captain), Virat Kohli (vice-captain), Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav, Ashok Dinda, Vinay Kumar, Ajinkya Rahane, Manoj Tiwari, Rahul Sharmalast_img read more
