  1. #1 Let's grade some horses. 
    Some friends of mine where out doing some test shootings with their Scorpio camera car on the horse track here in Stockholm. Then they asked if I could grade it for them.

    I find the material quite interesting as it is shot with A quite slow Canon zoom lens late at night at about 10 o'clock, at 98fps with 90 deg shutter, and the material has this nice magic hour kind of feel that can really be pulled in a lot of different directions. Some could argue it's all a bit under exposed, but I actually think the grain and such coming from that matter gives the images an rather appealing look. (I even added more grain when I did the grade bellow).

    Any way I figure it would be cool to show them what the guys at reduser could do with colors so I figure I upload a couple of r3d's. So please if you feel like playing with horses here is a link to the r3d download.

    And here is a link to the vimeo file I uploaded from the HD grade I did, It does not show much of picture qualities as vimeo makes most things look like go pro, but to me it very much makes me want one of those camera cars :)



    Any way here is my grade, in retrospect I think I gone a bit dark but I really like the way it's possible to play with the sky on these shots and the way the low exposure bringings texture to the shots. So in the process of fiddling with the sky I think I went a bit dark on horses, So I might give it another go if i get time and make a brighter version. :)

    Not sure which one they used for this, But the whole vimeo thing is edited from one continues r3d, so it's for sure all from the same lens, one of the new canon pl zoom lenses that is. Have to ask them.

    I think it was the 14,5-60mm this one: http://www.ljud-bildmedia.se/index.p...t.show&id=1635

    or the 30-300mm.

    Nice, I'd love to see pic of cam car shooting. I loved the cinematography in "Luck".
