Instructional video for the Cinetics CineSquid and miniSquid suction cup camera mounts. Please post any questions in the comments and learn more at cinetics.com
Spend the day with our friend Bohus Blahut as he tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the super-strong flexible suction-cup camera mounts known as CineSquid and miniSquid!
From assembly, to attachment, to eliminating vibration, and best equipment and proper lens safety, this video has it all! Watch as Bohus takes you step-by-step through every aspect of filming with CineSquid and miniSquid. Learn how placing the camera at different points on the car can drastically change the perspective and the dynamics of your shot. There's even a section on how to make timelapses with your 'Squid to get clips that manipulate time and space in a way that normal filming just can't replicate. With multiple demonstrations of angles, Bohus takes you on a journey around Chicago to show how simple and effective the 'Squids can be.
This is a more complete version of a retouch I did for my X-rite webinar on retouching. The basic approach is Frequency Separation to place texture and color/tone in separate layers. This allows you to re-shade the image while leaving the texture intact. I have to thank Doug Pizac for this wonderful portrait!
