Videoclip
2012
Courtesy of La Rivolta Records

Frames from a videoclip for the song When I Was Young by My Secret Window. Shot on 7D. The director wanted to turn the whole videoclip (originally shot in colors) to black and white. I worked on contrast, keeping the shadows dark and lowering the gain in the highlights and in the mid-tones. I created many power windows to control the gain in specific areas. Some clips were really overexposed (like the bride’s veil in the first frame) but the posterization was not too bad in the end.
