Zoom isnt a bad investment, but you might be right. Honestly, don't go gear nuts. Even with the advice i gave above which i think is a way to spend two grand thats not what id do. Id use what I already owned and find some other people and beg borrow and steal as much as i could. Spend that 2 grand on a actual movie, and try and put every dollar on the screen.

I totally get the concept of wanting to have gear for multiple shoots. But I think you will learn a lot from just jumping right in. Shoot a short for 50 bucks with your friends over a weekend. then shoot another for a hundred bucks, and build on that. After that use all you learned with the rest of the dough to make something longer. I know it sounds crazy, but you can do it if you budget and write the script around things you already own and have access to.

More than anything a project you believe in will last longer than any piece of gear.

But if you are dying to buy something start with some simple paper lanterns mixed with a reflector you can get some good looking stuff, great soft light, and you learn some basic lighting skills. You will still need a few stands. But you can get away with a lot with these because they are light. Use practical lamps and natural light to fill out your scenes.

The lights in that kit are compact fluros which typically give awful shades of green and magenta in your shot. It is much better to use Incandescent light bulbs (the ones with a little filament that lights up).

I'd suggest making some of your own lights using these parts:

and then wiring in your own small dimmer so you can change the levels of the light

Something like that but obviously it needs a box to protect it... or get an inline dimmer.

This should work out to be cheap, give you better control and nicer colours.

Don't bother with all that cheap shit. It will break in no time and you'll be back at square one.

The reason an Arri tungsten light costs so much is because they will last you decades of being thrown around.

Ok, I'll tell you what you can do to get a few oz's of shroomy delight for yourself for a measly ~$150.

This is going to be my take on growing, or in other words - pofs' tek. Yea...I like the sound of that. Except it's not going to be very detailed.

Pofs' Tek - A guide for the partially lazy

So, basically, I cut out a few steps - that of making your own substrate and and sterilizing it and prepping a bunch of jars and grain spawn. I use Out-Grow's bulk supplies package which consists of 4 quart jars of sterilized rye grain, and 4 lbs of compost (manure-based substrate) and it costs $35 + shipping which was $15 for me for a total of $50

Then I used a 13.5qt clear bin I bought from amazon made by Iris, which cost $5/ea + $4 shipping (which is a steal in bulk, but you'll only need 1 for this guide) which will cost $9, or $59 total

I did this inside so I used a Timer($7), a Lamp Cord ($9), and a 6500k cfl ($8) for a total of $24 on this part (which can be replaced by sunlight if you have a room with natural lighting) and a total of $83

I used spores from - b+ to be specific. I've switched to's spores since, because they are cheaper and come with a lot more spores inside the syringe. You'll run around $15-$30 for spores no matter where you get em and bring the total to $113 assuming $30 for syringe and shipping.

I also bought Polyfill ($7) for a total of $120 bare minimum start price.

And now you have all of the essentials.

I'll write the growing process later.

Here's the link to the bulb:

I ordered that and put it into one of these:

The larger light I'm honestly not sure. After we legalized I bought it as part of this kit a hydro store in Maryland had put together, and just came in a unmarked box as part of a larger wholesale shipment I imagine.

The entire kit was like $325 or something and I remember the light being a little less than half of that, so it's likely comparable to other $150 or so full spectrum LED's, you can also control whether it's just blue/red/or both.

u/pixelnote · 1 pointr/knitting

Well, I think I found the bulbs they use. They are LED ones, so heat isn't an issue. You can use a cord like this, unless you can find a thicker one (I didn't look too hard).

As for knitting around the cord, I think the project is knitted and then slid onto the cord. I guess you could assemble it as you go around the cord, but that seems more difficult.

This is going to be very difficult to achieve with a T2i. Much of the detail is in the shadows, which the T2i doesn't capture very well.

Start with some ND on the windows. I'd start with knocking them back 2 stops, but you'll likely need more. After that add some fill light from something soft at camera right. Maybe 3x china balls in a line to keep the cost down. I'd love a 4-bank here, but the paper lanterns are a very affordable way to get some soft light. Since you're shooting agains the sun be sure to put daylight balanced lights in them. 2700-3200k warm lights are going to give you color balance woes.

The goal with the lighting is to try to bring the dynamic range into something a T2i can record. The difference from dark to light here is the problem. Cameras that shoot raw or log formats are more equipped for this shot.


As for color, the people in this sub will have better advice. I'm not really a color person, but I'll take a crack and hopefully someone can tell you what I'm wrong about.

For starters desaturate the shit out of what you shot. This starts with art direction, continues into set design, and finally ends in post. You can only be as successful as what the camera is allowed to record.

Next you need to lift the pedestal. The blacks should be pretty milky. This is something the T2i will struggle to do elegantly as its encoder doesn't give you a lot of shadow detail. Pull up the bottom point of a curves layer up 15ish percent. After that add a point a little bit up the line and lift that even more. Work the curves after that to get toning that you like. It doesn't have to be final, but try to get it much of the way there. What you really need will vary based on your shot.

Next I believe (could be my laptop screen leading me astray) the shadows have a slight purple tint. Add that with a 3-way. Use the same 3-way to push your midtones towards green. Also push your highlights towards the same green. You might push the highlights slightly more towards yellow or orange than you did the mids. The midtones are pushing further on the color wheels, so make sure that point is further from the center of the wheel than the highlights point is. Note that you'll probably need to adjust the pivot point for the shadows-to-midtones transition and work the curves from above to get that changeover happening where you like it.

Add a soft dark correction to the room using some sort of soft mask to target that area more specifically. If the camera moves a lot your mask is going to need to change to compensate.

After that get some grain going on. Add a final curves to get the toning you want to finish with.


Now hopefully I've said something wrong along the way. Nothing brings out good advice like giving bad advice. :-)

Without knowing too many particulars (like how often you water) I'd say the main culprit here looks to be overwatering, although sunlight definitely sounds like a factor as well. Almost all of these are desert plants, and should be allowed to dry out between watering.

For cactus #11, was it steadily growing sideways towards a light source, or did it just seem to suddenly collapse? It doesn't look to have typical yellowing that you see on rotting cactus, but if it collapsed rather suddenly it's most likely due to overwatering. Not sure if it's salvageable, perhaps someone else has advice.

The hawthornia (zebra plant) and jade also look to be overwatered. Are the yellow leaves on the jade mushy feeling? I would repot them both, checking for mushy roots. If the jade has root rot, you may be best off propagating a few new ones from healthy leaves (it's super easy and rewarding :) ). I'd suggest repotting in terracotta pots. They might not be as visually appealing as some decorative pots, but the clay will help to pull out extra moisture from the soil.

I think you're correct about the overwatering of the fiddle leaf fig as well, but as long as the woody stalks aren't withered it should recover. I don't have much experience with them, but I know it can be a long process (1 yr+) to see healthy new growth.

If you're concerned about a lack of light, I would also suggest picking up a full spectrum light bulb and a cheap pendant lamp, and putting your plants under it. While it's not a perfect replacement for natural sunlight, I got one for my jade tree a while back and it seems to help.

It's hard to see, but it looks like your small air plant may have bloomed, is that right? I believe most air plants only bloom once in their life, and you'll want to cut the dead bloom off at its base to promote potential pups sprouting. Your large air plant is lovely by the way, I'm a bit envious. :)

I'm a pretty casual/novice plant lover, but I figured I'd try to steer you in (hopefully) the right direction, since there hasn't been any other advice given. Best of luck to you!
