Video Essentials for Photographers.

2-Day workshop that goes through all the tools that a photographer will need in order to make the transition from stills to motion video.

Dates: 2-day Workshop

Saturday and Sunday (12/1 – 12/2 2012) from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Code: Coming Soon

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 crewmembers.

This year, PDN Magazine published what we consider the “13 Prod­ucts you need to add HD Video to your busi­ness.” (You might need the password “tutorials” to download the file.) The arti­cle is also avail­able on PDN’s May print issue. If you are new to Video, this list is a great place to start.

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.
