      Hey Roger!

      I was wondering what you think about using haze & lens filters. Because I know you like to shoot as clean as possible regarding to lens choice.

      Do you like to use filters on your lenses? And what about haze?

        Hopefully, I’m not putting words in his mouth by saying this. I recall a podcast where he explained that he shot an entire film with filtration and regretted it.

        Also, in the “old” forum, there was a great discussion where David ( @dmullenasc ) and Roger talked about filters. I think it’s safe to say Roger is willing to use filters but highly selective about it.

        In the “Looking at lighting” section of the site (Members > Looking At Lighting), Roger breaks down scenes from ‘BR 2049’. He mentions filters, what he selected, why, etc.

          The filters I used on ‘BR 2049’ were purely to adjust color and not effecting the image in any other way and I do sometimes use an ND grad. The last time I used a filter such as a Pro Mist or a similar kind of diffusion was for a film in 1985 and, yes, I did regret doing so.


            Dear Roger,

            What circumstances would require you to adjust colours by using a filter?

            What filters do you use to adjust colour?

            Much appreciated

            Kind regards
