          Hi Fred, not Roger 🙂 just want to say it’s great to see you here – have you gone or thought about going to a film school? Do you make your own short films? Keep going – I worked with 2 people in a similar situation to yours in film schools and there was alot of support and encouragement from the industry here (Australia). It’s never too late!

            It seems from some more recent films that no matter how it’s lit, post goes bezerk on female faces with relighting and “beauty” filters… male actors will get it too but not as heavy handed..

              Another way to look at it is that directors often have a definite style, and it’s the cinematographers job to convey it.

                For me, a cinematographer does a great job if you don’t notice their work! Of course a compelling story and quality actors are important for this.. plus of course the director.

                Apart from our esteemed host, Stanley Kubrick (who basically DP’ed his films, from what I understand) is another one who is very good at making the camera work seem to disappear leaving us with the story and performances. Would love to see Sir Roger direct a film 🙂

                  Check out Flanders Scientific..

                  You will need to calibrate your monitor, even if it is an FSI – you can get an i1 pro or similar device, and calibrate with that.. ideally every monitor on set should be calibrated.

                  Calibration is definitely a rabbit hole, and is usually done by a dedicated pro – might be worth looking for an expert in your region and consulting with them.

                  Good luck 🙂

                      There’s a cinematographers round table on youtube with Sir Roger where he discusses this very subject 🙂
