How to Shoot Video with a DSLR Camera

Workshop Image


One of the greatest innovations in Digital SLR technology is the ability to shoot High Definition Video.  This 1-day introductory workshop in HDSLR techniques will help participants clarify the blurry lines and understand the differences between still photography and motion capture. The workshop will include an overview of camera settings, discussions on technical limitations, workarounds, feature demonstrations, and shooting assignments. It will also include approaches to file management, sound, and the use of camera accessories.

The workshop will be hosted in SAW Video's Workshop Room. There will be 2 different types of DSLR Camera's provided for this workshop, as well as camera accessories, but bringing in your own DSLR camera capable of High Definition Video is recommended. Please note that you are responsible for the care of your own camera during the workshop.
