Outdoor scene from "Jesse James" (4 replies)
I hope you and James are doing well. I continue to love your podcasts.
For this scene from "Jesse James" could you possibly recall
- which lens you might have used on this scene and
- what T-stop you might have used?
I'm interested because although it looks like the camera might have been 10 or 12 feet away from the actors, you still have quite a shallow depth of field, which beautifully draws the eye to the actors.
Thanks so much!
ooops here's the image
I would have been shooting at around 5.6 but the camera is also much further from the actors than you suggest as this was a relatively long lens shot.
Ah ok, like a 50mm you think?
Yes, it could have been a 50mm.
