Matysiak Picks New Lenses and Tiffen Filters for an Unforgiving Western Look on Old Henry Posted: 10/11/2021
Matysiak Picks New Lenses and Tiffen Filters for an Unforgiving Western Look on and quot;Old Henry and quot;

Reaching for a historic lens is an almost instinctive choice for modern cinematographers, especially those keen to transport an audience back in time. On Old Henry, cinematographer John Matysiak took a different approach to creating a realistically harsh and unforgiving world for director Potsy Ponciroli's western. Inspired by photographers of the time, Matysiak used carefully chosen Tiffen diffusion filters to control contrast and sharpness while also enjoying the consistency and speed of precise modern lenses.

LitraStudio and trade; Crushes it 30-feet Below for Pete Romano ASC

Few know underwater cinematography and how to light the great blue sea, better than Pete Romano ASC. His unique specialty has made him sought after for most major films where’s there’s any underwater action. His 40-year underwater track record is unmatched. IMDB tries but at 159 credits for film and television they just skim the surface, especially considering the multitude of commercials, music videos and documentaries to count.
