A lovely job, it took me back to my
roots in fashion stills.
I wanted a very soft look to this but
without diffusing it, so I lit it with Dino's bounced off large
windbags with clear glass 12 K HMI's gelled very warm to give it
This was the first time I used Primetime and the first time I transferred
with Spirit, I ended up very impressed with both.
The Primetime held contrast that was totally lost on conventional
stock. I was able to confirm this because as a result of a request
from Mick@VTR we shot one sequence on '93 as well. This was actually
shot so that he could do some tests on his Spirit but it gave us
a wonderful side by side comparison.
The '93 looked harsh and lost both highlight and shadow detail when
compared with the Primetime.
We mainly shot with 75 & 150 tilt & shifts to concentrate
attention on the clothes, we also used the ramping facility of the
435 to slightly slow some turns and moves of the model.
