Recent advances in DSLR technology has led to a whole new generation of cameras that can shoot High Definition video. For the photographer accustomed to capturing still images, the moving image presents a challenge. What settings do I use? What are frame rates? What compression do I use when exporting my projects? What lenses work best with video? What accessories do I need to get started? What program should I use to edit my projects?
All these questions will be answered and more in this 3 day workshop on capturing and editing your DSLR videos. We will review the capabilities of different cameras that can capture Hi-Def video and set up our cameras properly for a project. We will capture multiple scenes, decide if audio is appropriate at time of capture or added later and import our footage. Our video editor of choice will be Adobe Premiere Elements 9, a new entry into the field, which is an entry level version of Adobe Premiere Pro. One advantage of Premier is that it allows direct importation of your footage direct from capture without having to worry about transcoding choices and decompression issues.
From here we will learn about the video timeline, multiple video tracks and audio tracks. We will work with transitions and editing strategies to make the most effective use of your footage to tell the story you want convey. Whether documentary or abstract, narrative or free from, effective editing is the key to producing compelling video. Finally we will work with various export options, from large screen televisions to YouTube. This is considered an entry level workshop for those new to video and will cover all basic techniques to get you started in the exciting new world of DSLR video.
