Gain the confidence to set up a video shoot under the skilled guidance of artist Fran Breden!
Basic technical aspects of camera operation, sound recording, and lighting principles are taught through demonstration and hands-on practical exercises using the Canon Rebel T4i high definition camera and its interchangeable lenses. Learn how to use manual settings to help you get the best shot. Understand exposure, gain, shutter speed, and white balance. Using the Zoom H4n, audio recording procedure and considerations will be introduced. The principals of three-point lighting will also be covered and practiced.
This workshop uses equipment you can rent from VIVO, so it’s a great primer to get you started on your videos! It also benefits participants interested in VIVO’s more intermediary video-making workshops.
