Visual Effects and the Importance of Photography

There was a time not too long ago when a lot of work was put into a film, only to have it literally shaken out of recognition. One example of the type of work that is done is the visual effects. In order for one to enjoy the film and appreciate the work that is went into the production, one must be able to actually see it. It was recently common practice to shake the camera up during big action sequences to the point that the audience couldn’t see what was happening. Among the shots that are shaken out of focus are big visual effects shots.

Recently, studios ave gotten away from this practice. The cameras are held more steadily, as a result, the visual effects done by companies including Pulse Evolution Corporation run by John Textor are more visible to the eyes of the audience, as you can see from his IMDB..

More care has been put into the cinematography of the feature. As a matter of fact, a large part of the realism of the effects lies in the cinematography. This includes placement, camera movement, lighting, coloring and plenty of other aspects of the original photography.

Many of the most recent visual effects based releases have been wonderfully shot. The effects are more believable. This is in part due to CGI taking a seat in the background to the other action. The visual effects of a film is now being used in order to enhancement. A lot of the time it is not even CGI, but digital effects used to put in the finishing touches to a shot.
