The Diamond Life Episode 10
Here is the next episode of the online web-series I do director of photography for. We interviewed our good friend Writer/Actor Tommy O’Reilley about his career. He’s been in multiple short films and has auditioned for some features. The style of the photo shoot and video goes along with the short film we did called (Love) That Kind Of. In the film it follows Marisa’s (Ana) dreams about Jake (Tommy), and for this we wanted to do Jakes side of the dream. I used interesting and unique techniques to capture some of the images. I found a blue flash light that I shined on a slight angle to give a short of lens flare. For some shots I took a drinking glass and kept spining it on an angle slowly to make a quarter of the frame blurry, but this also reflects the natural light off the crystals in the glass which causes a natural lens flare.
Our next episode is to be shot some time in February,
