American Society of Cinematographers Master Class

I attended the week long workshop, held March 16-20 in Los Angeles, with 19 other Cinematographers from all over the world. High points included three days of production on the Mole Richardson stage and a day of color correcting at EFILM. Instructors included Gabriel Beristain ASC Bill Bennett ASC, and David Mullen ASC. It was a wonderful experience to work with these great cinematographers.

Canon 5D Mark 3 at 3200

I had a chance to show off the Canon 5D Mark 3 at the Monterey Opera performance on Saturday night October 27 at the Golden State Theater in Monterey California. I shot everything at ISO 3200 and was very impressed with the camera's performance. Images are perfectly clean and noise free. With todays cameras we can shoot things in natural light that would have been impossible a just few years ago.
