Cam­era setup

Chris says: We tweaked a few of Les’ ba­sic set­tings to get bet­ter re­sults in­stantly. First he changed to shoot­ing in 14-bit RAW, which takes up more space on your mem­ory card but gives a lit­tle ex­tra tonal and colour range. Les had his pic­ture con­trol set to Vivid. This is usu­ally used for things like fash­ion shoots, so he switch back to neu­tral, as you can al­ways in­crease colours in post-pro­duc­tion. Be­fore they got ready to find some puffins to pose for them, Chris checked that Les was all set up and ready to take some great bird por­traits.
