Film One film, one lens


Probably Not Walter Kernow
Even though I don't shoot movie film, I still find it fascinating to see what goes on in that world.

For the film "Call me by my name", they used one Kodak film stock & one lens for the entire shoot.

Interesting that they went with a 35mm focal length for the lens & also amazing to hear that they pushed the film when required.

35mm seems to have fallen out of favour as a stills focal length - not wide enough for the wides and not long enough to get close.

Nature Photographer Bill Ratcliffe had 13 covers for Audubon Magazine, a 52 page spread on the Kapairowits Plateau, coffee table books and many others. One Burke & James 4x5 camera with a 10 inch Commercial Ektar lens.

He was excellent and had a file of chromes of Death Valley that are amazing.
