The Revenant is a perfect example of why photographers should let themselves be inspired by movies, not random people on /b/, not your college photography teacher, not magazines, not "prominents on the interwebs". Also, it is a perfect example of how white balance can be used for artistic effect, unlike what many /p/eople here say ("muh grey cards, muh corrections").
Also, if someone could tell me how they managed to get this shot in that weather with such a narrow aperture at that speed, that would be great.

bit of an assumption to say that photographers are only inspired by posts on 4 chan or magazines or internet advice nerds.
weird to make a thread about it in fact.
most photographers are inspired by photographers (sometimes they'll see the work by photographers in magazines!!!!!!1)
I'm going to assume back at u that this is the first thing you've ever seen thats inspired you and you've had to rush to make a thread about it.

this to be honest. kid's probably 18 or 19 and The Revenant is the first 2DEEP SERIOUSART movie he's seen.
Thanks. I don't know about the others but the Alexa 65 tops out at 3200. I thought the shutter speed (water droplets look pretty still) and aperture (DOF looks pretty big) would need more than that but I haven't got any experience in that kind of thing.
I'm pretty sure the people who did The Revenant can get white balance right. Yet they STILL do colors.
You're just being an autist about this.
>All the colors are intentional in movies
As they should be in photography
>most photographers are inspired by photographers
Not my experience, but yes, I was making this for a particular audience.
It's not even 2DEEP.
Yes, if natural lighting is colored. lol
White balance can be used to artistic effect in support of a visually directional scene. Making a photo of a bowl of fruit blue doesn't instantly make it sad, or lonely. Just like hitting a washer with a hammer doesn't actually get anything done, randomly using white balance "for artistic effect" without support is useless. Most of what /p/ critiques color about is due to this issue.
Just throwing that out there.
This should be obvious to anyone. Those examples get closer to "entertainment effect" than actual "artistic effect", or well, just poor bad judgment.
But there are real people out there who will shake their fists at anything that hasn't been grey carded to hell, even if it looks utterly shit and does about the same for the scene/photo as the photo of a bowl of blue fruit.
Good input. Thanks.
Leo was overrated as fuck in this
Based Hardy is a much better actor
>he ate raw liver or some shit and got inside a dead horse
Protip: that does not = acting
On a related note, cinematography was excellent and looked way better than the cinematography in the hateful eight
I thought the Hateful 8 cinematography was pretty good, as Tarantino's last few films in general are, but the 70mm ultra-Panovision-rama-luxe was definitely overhyped and not needed for a film that was 80% interior close ups.
Agreed that Revenant blew it out of the water, though.
Fuck you guys. "Not on film, no thanks", one of the most short sighted and fedora tipping things I've ever heard. If you like film more than digital for your work, that's cool. But if you believe they don't each fit better in different scenarios then you're seriously missing something.
Nothing individually hasn't been done before in any movie. ultra-wide angle, bone chilling color grade, PoV and long continuous shots. But when put together in varying proportion you get this weird thing called style that I understand few people on /p/ have an eye for.
