Documentary: White Lining

Cinematography from the Documentary: White Lining

This was an Exterior shoot using Natural Lighting only.

Camera was the Canon EOS C300 – tripod mounted but unlocked, that is operated loose head or alternatively handheld not using a shoulder rig.

Shot the road marking operations predominantly using the Canon Zoom EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM as the road crew worked extremely quickly and there was little time to stop for lens changes.

Used the Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM for close ups of the machinery.

For the interviews I used the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM for the mid shots and close ups. For the low level shots I positioned the camera on a book placed at ground level.

I shot with an open aperture to create a shallow depth of field particularly for the interview sequences typically F4 making use of the ND filters to prevent overexposure.
