This in-depth, hands-on workshop teaches participants the skills need to operate Sony F5 / F55 cameras. Designed for working professionals, as well as those who are looking to enter the field, the course gives detailed instruction on camera set up, operation and workflows.

Raw, Log & Uncompressed – Chicago

Overview Many of today’s latest cameras offer Log & Raw recording modes, giving extended dynamic range and versatility in post. However, shooting in Log & Raw presents many challenges both in the field and in the post-production process. This class is an introduction to Log & Raw recording and its applications. Participants will be presented with technical and aesthetic implications of shooting in different Log & Raw modes, and discussions will be part theory and part practical application. We will…


Monitor Calibration – Chicago

Overview To truly judge your image on set and in post, it is necessary to have a properly calibrated monitor. From a small on-camera LCD screen to large home displays, most monitors offer some form of calibration adjustment. This workshop demonstrates the methods and tools used to calibrate a monitor. Focus will be on white point adjustment, color & contrast adjustment, and the tools used to analyze a monitor. A bundle discount is available when you purchase all DIT Week…


LUTs 101: Theory – Chicago

Overview

Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring. This is where the use of Look Up Tables (LUT) comes in, which are offsets that allow you to manipulate your image and create a look without affecting the camera originals. This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 101: Theory will demonstrate the process for creating a LUT for cameras like the Alexa, Sony F5 & F55, and Varicam. Specific focus is types of LUTs, LUT combinations and layering, and tools used for OnSet LUT creation.


LUTs 201: Practical Application – Chicago

Overview

Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring.

This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 201: Practical Application further expands on the curriculum of LUTs 101: Theory. This class explores the creative side of LUT design as well as applying LUTs in different post production applications. Working with live camera sources, this class demonstrates creating looks from various cameras. These looks will then be applied in a variety of post editing and grading applications.
