The Lighthouse Mobile Lightroom Presets inspired by the awarded film are specially designed for Photographers and Photo Editors.
From the beginning, Eggers wanted to shoot the film in black and white and a “narrow, vintage” aspect ratio. Consequently, The Lighthouse was shot on black and white 35mm film, with an orthochromatic aesthetic that evokes 19th-century photography, as well as a nearly square 1.19:1 aspect ratio that corresponds to narrow sets and seeks to withhold information from the audience.
Blaschke and Eggers achieved the aesthetic of The Lighthouse by using a combination of film tools. The entire film was shot on Panavision Millennium XL2 cameras that were equipped with a vintage 1930s Baltar lens, and black-and-white Eastman Double-X 5222 film was used with a custom short pass filter. Blaschke almost exclusively set his aperture to T2.8, setting only the characters as the focus of shots. Due to the low sensitivity of the film used on set, 8k and 9k HMI lights were used through the entirety of filming, as natural light could not suffice. HMI light was bounced off muslin cloths for daytime scenes. Low voltage bulbs and china lights were used to light night time and closeup scenes.
In that manner, I decided it might be helpful to take famous films and focus on their use of light and see how masters put together cohesive and expressive filters so you can implement similar strategies into your photo’s aesthetic.
Please note: The final effect may vary, depending on the individual characteristics of the original image.
