    La crudele lontananza (Handel) From the CD Hidden Handel by Ann Halleberg and Il Complesso Barocco under Alan Curtis. Written for a 1714 revival of Rinaldo with soprano Anastasia Robinson in the role of Almirena. Ms. Robinson was much admired for her powers of emotional expression. Having been magically abducted by the sorceress Armida, Almirena wonders whether she can survive the painful separation from Rinaldo, and she despairs of ever regaining her freedom. “La crudele lontananza che struggendo il cor mi va. Mi fa priva di speranza di tornar in libertà.” [This cruel separation That ravages my heart Deprives me of the hope Of regaining my freedom.] Art by John William Godward (1861-1922) CD available from Naïve: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AJOOZ1C/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p15_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

      Just a small summer montage of shots I took to practice using an inexpensive +1 close up filter as a diopter for my anamorphic setup (classic Helios 44 and Kowa 16-S combo). Using the diopter simply allows me to focus closer than the usual 4.5/5 ft that the Kowa lens normally limits me to, and allows for shallow DOF that can be hard to attain with dual-focus anamorphic rigs. I don't shoot a ton of anamorphic because, being poor and not in possession of an Iscorama, it can be tricky to get both lenses to focus on the same thing and get a usable shot, even more so when a diopter is introduced. But I was pleasantly surprised that almost everything I got during this practice shoot was usable. Shot using a NEX-7 at 1080/60p, stretched to 2x width and then cropped to 2880x1080 for a 2.66:1 aspect ratio, using the extra horizontal resolution to fine-tune my framing (and crop out the bizarre cylindrical "halo" reflection that can occur in the Kowa's barrel). Obviously, it was then compressed to a less exciting 720p VBR file for web display, but I find that the detail holds up quite well in Premiere Pro when stretched and sharpened a tad. I graded for a Kodak-like filmic look using Magic Bullet - a little bit of warming, saturation and film grain (to hide the ugly macroblocking that shows up from time to time in 60p).
