In this workshop we will be looking at the vast landscape of lenses available to the modern Cinematographer. We will learn to evaluate lenses to determine which are appropriate for each project, from choosing lenses for their aesthetic look to rejecting lenses for their practical deficiencies. We will discuss true cinema lenses vs still photography lenses, modern vs vintage, primes vs zooms. And we will look at a selection of lenses on camera on the big screen to see firsthand the differences between them.
Corby Martin is the owner and optical specialist at Salmo Cine. He has a passion for cinema lenses and loves to bring an artists vision to the screen through optics.
Corby started his career as a filmmaker shooting snowboard videos, he quickly moved on to lensing broadcast TV shows and music videos. He has been the director of photography on dozens of commercials, and several short films and documentaries. Corby’s career transitioned to working on the lenses rather than with them as a lens technician.
Over the years he has had the honor of speaking on panel discussions and as a brand presenter at industry trade shows N.A.B. and CineGear. He has personally serviced lenses for TV shows such as Riverdale, Bates Motel and Super Girl and feature films Warcraft and Deathnote. The accomplishment Corby is most proud of is designing and building the Ethereal and Effigy lens systems for Sim International, which have been used on the CW series Nancy Drew and the NatGeo series Valley of the Boom respectively.
When not dreaming up new lens designs Corby is an avid snowboarder and spends many hours running And hiking in the mountains.
