You really need to curate what is in front of the camera. Everything in frame is partly your responsibility. Locations… wardrobe… story…composition…. Great acting…. Emotion… the correct and appropriate lighting (direction, hard, soft, contrast levels etc.).
get this right first and then worry about ‘better’ gear.
Have you considered the Zeiss Otus stills lenses. As good as a MP in my opinion.
ProRes bakes in the colour temp. If you shoot raw, you can also shoot open gate and use the full sensor of the XT.
Just out of interest, how do you meter when using your Leica for street photography?
What circumstances would require you to adjust colours by using a filter?
What filters do you use to adjust colour?
The Leica M8 is wonderful for b&w! I had one and there was an issue with the sensor. Leica offered an upgrade to the M9, but that too suffers from a sensor that oxidates. Unfortunately I discovered this after they stopped replacing the sensor so my m9 is pretty useless. Their offer for a discount to upgrade is really really disappointing!! I hope your Leica’s last longer than mine.
Tough position to be in…. If you have committed yourself then I suggest you do what you’ve promised and do the best job you can. Do your very best. Stay positive, keep your head down, don’t complain and make the best of a bad situation. And as James once commented, don’t think that any position on set is beneath you.
Use this as a learning experience. In future, don’t commit to unpaid work unless their are other benefits for you in terms of experience gained.
You also need to consider alternative employment and means of earning cash between jobs so that you can be more discerning when deciding what jobs to take in the future.
Just my 2 cents..
