New FB Group - "Junk Camera Cinematography"
« on: January 25, 2021, 08:45:29 PM »
Just for fun, I started a new group on Facebook if anyone is interested. Here's the write up.

Low resolution? Compression artifacts? Clipped highlights? One person's image quality nightmare is another person's sought-after look.

This group is for filmmakers of all levels who want a little break from thinking about image quality -- or who never focus much on it to begin with. Whether you're someone who enjoys the challenge of trying to shoot something with less than adequate tools, or you just like the lo-fi texture of older point-and-shoots, early smartphones, CCD camcorders, or industrial/security cameras, this group embraces the cameras that serious filmmakers would NEVER use...

Or would they?

Spend as little as possible or use what you already have. Learn the quirks, make something interesting, and experience the creativity that comes from working within limitations.

I'm hoping that this group can be a soothing balm for those that feel like there's too much emphasis on new and better gear, or those who just want to shoot something for fun without worrying so much about image quality. It would be great to see some of you in there:
