Introduction to DSLR Video
What You'll Learn
Shooting video with a DSLR camera is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to create high-quality video. These new cameras created a firestorm in the video production world with their ability to shoot footage similar to that of 35mm motion-picture film.
In this three-hour workshop, we will cover everything you need to start shooting video with DSLR cameras. We'll discuss the accessories needed to use the camera for cinema and production-style shooting, and create a mini-studio in the classroom to see how a DSLR responds in real time to lighting and camera settings. This workshop will also prepare you for the hands-on Intermediate DSLR Video class, for more in-depth training!
This workshop will cover:
- Still photography vs. video photography
- Getting the shallow depth of field, "cinematic look"
- How shutter speed, f-stop, and ISO affects video footage
- Pros and cons of these cameras and why you might choose them for certain types of projects and not others
- Some very important "gotchas" in capturing video footage with still cameras and lenses
- The basic workflow to be able to edit this footage in Adobe, Avid, or Apple NLE's.
- Extra gear and accessories for shooting cinema-style with an entry-level or medium-sized budget
- Fundamentals of audio and shooting dual-system sound
- What to consider when purchasing a DSLR for video production
Who Should Take This
Videographers and photographers who have never shot DSLR video before, or who have only done a little and feel completely lost! Familiarity with video and photo terminology is helpful.
