The latest dispaches have reduced the advantage from 6 to 4 according to the MFD owners and 1ish point according to the dslr's owners (if I remember well).
I'd like to be like Chris! Those filmakers are the only one who really have fun filming those photographers headaches dynamic range's testings on "bodegones" (how do you say bodegon in english?).
Today I filmed on the plateau with hot lights (not HMI but warmer)...love it more and more.
Back to the chicks, I mean the bird, the sea bird: It's a great picture! Seriously and I'm not kidding any more, I like it.
¿en qué bodegón hemos comido juntos?
I suppose you could call it an easy-eats, a corner boozer, the local. In other words, my average lunch parlour.
Thinking of the Golden Age (as I sometimes do) last night, I also thought about Fred and his early interest in boats.
This one, Fred, is twenty-five metres, has twin 1600 MTUs and was built by Cantieri Fregene, Fregene being the then little resort down on the coast outside Rome. It was featured - the coast - in La Dolce Vita; I worked there and in Rome on my first foreign shoot... I have often regretted going to live in Mallorca when I could have chosen Rome instead. But, the boats were what did for me. Even after I realised that selling the house and buying a boat was the cheap part, I couldn't shake the water dream; however, it was good for locations. Anyway, a tiny boat is no way to live: it's neither one thing nor the other.
The old family friend and his wife who owned this boat came to live here in Mallorca in the same year as we did; we did a lot of sailing together and the shot was take in Almerimar, not far from Almeria. There, in Almerimar, we were having dinner when we were invaded by a cloud of the largest mosquitos I have ever seen.
It was a great trip: we left Palma, went to Ibiza, messed around there a while, then over to the mainland and a few ports en route down to Gibraltar.
But you never, ever, have it all: my friend sold that yacht, bought a much larger ketch with the intention of sailing to the Amazon... he never made it. Cancer.
So you see, life kicks us all in the teeth at some stage.
Yep, as I say so often, there was
a very Golden Age but, like all things, it didn't last.
