I saw one of KVGs shots today that I thought looked right out of a film. I have chatted with Boid in the recent past about recreating a cinema style in stills photography. Show us your shots that have that look like they are from the big screen. Generally, I would think most of these would be 16:9 aspect ratio (or wider), but feel free to share an image if it has a cinema feel in other ways. Feel free to go through your archives and crop one to fit. For my first one here, I cropped to 2.35:1 aspect ratio (the popular CinemaScope aspect ratio) and then dropped it and centered it on a blank black 16:9 frame (like our modern-day tellys).

Kelly, your shots here have a pretty consistent white balance or color scheme that makes me feel like I'm viewing a movie.....very different from reality or from straight photography. Do you use a preset or does it depend on the image? I think the shots with shallow DOF lend themselves better to this "cinema" look, but I also am interested in the processing and color treatment that I see in your images.
In the first set, I LOVE "the hipster". The second set seems to have more of a consistency in color balance. Are you arriving more at a look that you are using consistently?

Therein lies the crux of the problem. Older FF cameras are always dropping in price with the release of every new body.
