Just before it rained in Shah Alam skatepark, I managed to shoot Nizam Lee to do a made 360 flip off the launcher. Here’s a shot of Nizam Lee, an ungraded captured still. Click for fullsize of the grab.
I chose not to use a picture profile which simulates a LOG/flat look. Dealing with 4:2:0 recording, i try to not stray too far away from the looks to be achieved. I was using Abelcine‘s AB_NORM picture profile with a little tweaks of my own. The softness came from the lens itself shooting wide open at F2.5 on the 105mm Nikon Ai-S. Still able to preserve detail nonetheless.
As much magic this camera can do compared to my previous cameras, lighting and style of contrast would always create the biggest difference. Don’t expect it to make everything better. A better tool most of the times just enhances what you can already do.
