Professional photographers are evolving and adding video to their list of offerings to clients. Driving the evolution is the need for competitive advantage and creative exploration. With the addition of high definition video capabilities to the latest batch of DSLR cameras, photographers have a convenient and familiar tool to fully embrace the new world of video. But video is very different than photography, with new challenges and technology to master.
Here to guide digital photography students on all aspects of video—from preproduction to post—are four veterans of film, video, and photography. Not only do the authors create video projects seen around the world, they speak the language of photography fluently and will ease the transition from still to motion. Within the book, students will learn how to plan their shoots, what gear they'll need, how to properly light for motion, how to achieve professional-level audio, the specifics on colour-correction and editing footage, various options for output, and artistic techniques such as stop-motion and time-lapse photography.
