Chromatic aberration like a part of storytelling (2 replies and 1 comment)
Hello, sir. Hi everyone
my name is Dima and we started to prepare for the next project. this is a movie about people whose lives are poisoned. literally and figuratively.
we want to help the narrative optically. and show poisoning with optical aberrations. I know that CG can solve this problem.
but I want to find a way to do it myself and immediately on the set. I want to have control over aberrations and increase or decrease them depending on the scene.
I will test lomo lenses and any vintage sets soon
but maybe I don't see another solution. special filters or special modification.
thanks and peace
There are many older stills lenses that suffer from CA like this. I own a set of Canon FD's that have pronounced Magenta, Green and purple Fringe when shooting trees and hair against highlights. It's gone by 2.8 and I have had a custom LUT made for those situations where I don't want to adjust the stop.
Many camera's have built in chromatic abberation reduction. Sony and Canon specifically. As long as you're shooting on a body with reduction I'd expect some CA from the Lomos though the Lomo sets available vary greatly. You might get stuck with a really clean set!
I've gotten some pretty wicked CA on Ultraprimes wide open.
Thanks a lot.
I keep looking )
last year we filmed a small video for GUCCI. we used a special monocle/monolense. and I like these aberrations. there are not lens-block here, which kill CA. I wanna try to find a solution to mix this result with more normal image.
