Natural Elements For Editors

It’s that time of year again and the holiday season is now upon us, but so is the weather. Depending where you’re at, you might be outside shooting in either rain or snowfall. Winter and fall puts forward special requirements for cinematographers and our gear, the process of shooting in during this time can be difficult to avoid falling snowflakes on the lens or just getting our gear wet. One way I like to get a weather shot is to shoot between the rain or snowfall, so your scene will be snowy or wet, but the elements aren’t actually falling from the sky and onto your subject of gear, then I handle the rest in post with a little bit of compositing.

‘Compositing is the combining of visual elements from separate sources into single images, often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene.’ wiki
