DSLR Video Essentials for Photographers.

Students will learn all of the steps to transition from photography into digital cinema including equipment, audio, lighting, shooting techniques, and more.

This work­shop is designed for pho­tog­ra­phers who are mak­ing the tran­si­tion into dig­i­tal cin­ema. We will cover the essen­tial selec­tions of cam­eras, lenses, exter­nal mon­i­tors, fol­low focus units, fluid heads, sup­port rigs, mem­ory cards and hard dri­ves. We will also dis­cuss audio and con­stant light­ing solu­tions. The sim­i­lar­i­ties and dif­fer­ences of shoot­ing still pho­tographs and videos will be looked at as we explore res­o­lu­tion, file for­mats and file types. The busi­ness aspects of film­mak­ing will also be taught includ­ing film­mak­ing terms, shoot­ing tech­niques and respon­si­bil­i­ties of crew members.

Pre­req­ui­site: SWC-1012, Mac­in­tosh Basics, or equivalent.

Thanks so much for all of your help­ful insight into the “scary” world of video. With your easy going style, and metic­u­lous atten­tion to detail, you made what I con­sid­ered a huge leap into video seem more like a small step.

The HDSLR sem­i­nar was a great way to get acquainted with the process of shoot­ing video. Mr. Angel took us from the pre-production process all the way through pro­duc­tion, explain­ing which gear is needed to get the job done. As a video edi­tor with more than 15 years of expe­ri­ence, I was pleas­antly sur­prised to hear him talk­ing about post-production, for­mats, and codecs, in terms that any still pho­tog­ra­pher could understand. I went to the sem­i­nar look­ing for a bet­ter under­stand­ing of HD Video on DSLR cam­eras and came out with that, and a lot more. If you want to make the move from stills to move­ment, this sem­i­nar is an excel­lent way to start.
