    Shooting Multiple Looks on a Lifestyle Location ShootDoublelocation rt prelg
    I recently went up to the James River, Virginia to do a location shoot with Ryan, one of the models I'm working with as I pursue my commercial vision. Since we're both looking to add more lifestyle to our arsenal, and I was looking for a location shoot anyway, it was a win-win. In this tutorial, I'm going to look at what lifestyle actually is, the preproduction that went into the shoot, and how I used the location on the day to get multiple looks, as well as the many decisions that require making on the fly on a shoot like this.Read More…

    Fine Tuning: Adding Chromatic AberrationC4d chromatic abberations retina
    Chromatic Aberration is a type of distortion caused when a camera's lens fails to focus on all colors along the outer boundaries of an object, causing noticeable fringes of color. Due to this real-world manifestation, it's necessary to recreate this effect in Cg to add an extra level of realism to your shots. In this tutorial, Cyril Kotecky will show you how the effect can be added in post using After Effects to simulate the imperfect optics of a real world camera lens.
