Behind The Scenes – DSLR Interview

I’ve been asked a few times recently to post more BTS (Behind The Scenes) images from my shoots so here’s a few from today. This was the latest in a series of interviews I’m doing for one of my clients. Interviews is one area where these cameras shine, so much so that three of the four people I shot today remarked about the amazing look of the shots.

My kit and workflow was exactly as described previously in my DSLR Workflow post. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to post a comment and ask.

    Just shot my first couple of interviews and cutaways with the 7D. Interview was in the pokiest recording studio imaginable lit with just one dedo and softlight diffuser, plus some of the ceiling spots for background.

    Director/Producer, who is experienced BBC TV doc producer comes in to see the shots later that day. Reaction : “My god that looks good!”

    One thing I would say is that in my very brief experience of shooting interviews that if you don’t play to cameras strengths the pictures very quickly start to look pretty regular. We did one interview outside (sunny) and the 50mm 1.4 lens on the 7D was framing too wide so I swapped back in the stock zoom but forgot to bring my ND filters for that lens so was closing up the aperture to compensate. We ended up going with the B CAM EX-1 (which was pretty wide open, zoomed in and NDs full on) because the producer felt it better matched the aesthetics of the 7D interior shots!!

    Ye lives and learns!
