Cinematography Light

OMG.  Thank you, Ben, for pointing out this great feed.   I've been doing a lot of color grading lately and reading it is making me (kind of) miss carrying around 70 pounds of camera equipment in the mud and rain.   And all the random things that happen while doing so, like being attacked by birds of prey.

Anyway, back to what inspired this post, this one is for all the devotees of camera test porn.  It's not what you're probably expecting.

There is a moment in Cleo de 5 a 7, where Corinne Marchand is in a cab and the camera is handheld on her.  At one point the cab turns and the camera, seeing an interesting passer-by, pauses for just an split second on that passer-by before panning back to Marchand.  Totally by instinct and total genius.
