Intermediate DSLR Video Hands-On

Intermediate DSLR Video Hands-On

What You'll Learn:

Unless you've been under the proverbial rock for the last few years, you've heard that video-capable DSLRs are creating a firestorm in the film and broadcasting communities for their ability to shoot footage similar to that of 35mm motion-picture film.

In this intermediate-level hands-on class, we will cover everything you need to take shooting video with a DSLR camera to the next level. We will explore the techniques and tricks to create properly-lit and exposed interviews with affordable lighting options and double-system sound.

This class will cover:

  • Using a DSLR camera like a 35mm motion film camera rather than an HD video camera
  • How to use a camera's histogram and RGB meters to give accurate exposure and white balance
  • Using vintage (i.e. affordable) lenses on a modern DSLR
  • Creating good methodologies for double-system sound
  • Some very important - gotchas - in capturing video with still cameras and lenses
  • Using basic and off-the-shelf lighting solutions, like tungsten. fluorescent, and LEDs

Who Should Take This:

Filmmakers who are comfortable using a DSLR camera for basic video and are ready to take their skills to the next level. We recommend taking Introduction to DSLR Video first.
