Fuck Yeah Resources 20 Matte Painting Tutorials Matte paintings are used to create virtual sets and digital back lots. They can be used to create entire sets, or to extend portions of an existing set. Traditional matte painting is done optically by painting on top of a piece of glass to be composites with the original footage. This trick is nearly as old as film itself.

If you’re new to shooting with digital cameras, it can be a bit overwhelming to fully understand all of the terminology and the options for controlling the exposure of the image. Film is pretty straightforward, where the film speed (or ISO, ASA, etc.) does not change. Shooting pictures is a bit more complicated, as the film speed can change, so you’ve got aperture, shutter speed, and ISO as three different settings to affect exposure. Shooting video is a bit different, as the shutter speed of DSLRs will typically not go below 1/30 of a second. The Three Basics of Exposure and Photography from Matthew Gore: Taking into considerations all of the factors that affect exposure is important. There are certain times when you’ll be outside and your ISO is already at the lowest setting (usually 100 or 200), and the shutter is set at 1/50 or 1/60 for normal motion, but the image is overexposed.

But you may also want keep a little stash at home, so that it’s easily accessible in case of an emergency. It used to be a habit we associated with our grandparents, but after the banking crisis of 2008 and 2009, even young consumers started keeping at least some of their cash within reach.
