These days, many photographers are being asked to shoot video along with stills... and not just video clips, but video stories. If you’ve ever tried it, you realize quickly that it’s not just a matter of hitting the “Record” button in addition to the shutter release.
This talk by National Geographic photographer and filmmaker and Sony Artisan of Imagery, Bob Krist, will discuss some of the basic skills needed to shoot short, cinematic, video stories. Krist focuses on the specific hurdles facing a still shooter making the transition and it will help you capitalize on your strengths, and overcome the pitfalls, that many photographers confront when facing a video assignment.
