Hi, I am Mike and this is the film review here at the substream.com. We’ve learned so much together, you and me, we’ve learned about focal length, lenses, and expulsion. We’ve learned about white balance in that graph, and that’s C-47’s are. Today, we would like to inaugurate a brand new series of videos about gels by doing this video. This is the inauguration.
We spent a lot of time brainstorming, having literal electrical storms inside of our brains to think not by the way to make a series of videos about cinematographic graphic and photograph in gels that are staying because people on the internet has more have it film at short attentions of it.
What we realized is we should probably just keep it short and to the point. What gels are, are pieces of polyester or polycarbonate that photographers or cinematographers used to change the color or the quality of the light in a scene. It can be extremely small maybe doing in front of the camera mans. They can be big enough to put in front of a single lamp or they can kind of huge, big large sheets to cover a whole lighting window that’s approximately a million and a half of different types of gels. This is our swatch book, a little demo book by Gel Manufacture or called Lee. You can get little books at any close that sells gels in the other manufacture and major manufactures Roscoe and they do a book like that too and you can see some of the million different gels.
You can also place a type of gel Jenny that she’s been using most of the time I called ND Gel, which is the same ND as an ND Filter which goes in front of the camera. What ND’s do basically of all we do is change the intensity of the light that passes through it, that’s all they change? They don’t change the color or the quality in the light, just the intensity of the light coming through it.
And you got ND3 or ND.3 which take a way one stop of light. So I’m going to stop by in there. We can get ND9’s which take a way three stops of light, a part of squares of darkness. And also that ND6 is here, ND.6 which takes away two stops.
Here we don’t have any ND6 in this video so you just have to imagine if you were in your mind’s eye, something that’s in between. These two routes of levels are darker. It’s like basically like putting a pair of sunglasses on your lamp as my friend Rio said earlier.
You’ll then use these things a lot if you’re a cinematographer if you have a lamp that’s putting a too much light relative to the other answer. Same if you’re shooting in the side and there’s too much lighting to your window with this what’s in ND up on your window. Unfortunately although juleps are about the news that they’re stoppable, ND3 as you can take two of them. You’d take two stops off the lamp that you can put an ND3 and then as it goes although gels are sanctuary disposable and expandable pieces of clone. They wear out overtime.
So, after we put a gels, I can find where I’d actually put the end. These are doing at and take a light meter. Make sure what your ND3 was taking a little stop. The more about that kind of gel type of stuff, more feature series are extremely understanding gel videos. And we’re talking to have some end. The filters Moroccan frost, more often fast as you would lose perhaps they’re shooting inside of gel, shooting as helps but I haven’t seen. So check back.
