I don’t see any problems with high speeds up to 1/500 th. Motion blur is just blur .
Movement remains real with high speeds .
I follow a guy on Youtube, Dod3032, who thinks says shooting higher shutter speeds doesn’t make that much of a difference – other that lighting the scene. My own experiences prove that. He’s put a short film out, that is really good. I love your stuff Tony, but until I see some real quality stuff from one of you 180 degree advocates… the jury’s still out for me.
The 180 degree shutter rule is simply a rule that was set up since the early days of cinematography. Just like shooting at 24fps, 3 point lighting, rule of thirds, etc. It’s okay to break the rule as long as you are aware of it. I break the 180 degree shutter rule when I want a more “intense” look. Higher shutter speeds create a staccato effect that is slightly unnatural and works well for action scenes. If you have little movement, higher shutter speeds may not be as noticeable.
Just curious as to where I can see your work. I see so many guys making shows on how to properly use dslr’s and have nothing to back it up. They take info from other sites, then spew it as their own. There’s only one way of knowing who is genuine and who’s the ripoff. POST some vids. This seperates the boys from men everytime. thanks
