This weekly course covers the most common questions videographers encounter when shooting and editing with DSLR cameras, from choosing a frame size and frame rate to understanding moiré. Authors Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman will also help you understand the impacts of compression and the difference between cropped (or micro 4/3rds) and full-sized sensors in cameras, and much more. This continual FAQ guide is a handy way to find the answers to the questions that plague you the most.
Rich: On an earlier episode, we talked all about small, portable lighting. Male 1: Yeah. Rich: I think it's time we put it into action. We got a car here, and you actually drive one of these. Male 1: I do. Rich: Where can we put some of these lights? Male 1: Well, the thing is, just like you go to scout a location, you gotta scout a car, especially when you're trying to, you know, stuff lights in it, and these days, there's a million places to put it. Dashboard comes to mind. The foot well of a car comes to mind. The foot well is actually one of my favorite places. Because it has a nice soft light shining up on a person's face, right? You can use sun-glass holders in the center, you know, above center rail right there.
Used cup holders, are another place you can do things, as well as the pockets on doors, often work well as well. Rich: Yeah, and with some simple things, like a Joby GorillaPod. Male 1: Yup. Rich: You can easily thread this, and then hang it off one of the hooks, like the what do you call those, the crash handles? Male 1: Yeah. Rich: I'm sure they, you know, those things are so silly, but cars have them. Male 1: And if you're really daring, and you really need to get, sort of, you know, more diffused light. You could also do things like mount lights with suction cups to windows, and have them, you know, bend in, and that kind of stuff as well. Rich: Yeah, so we're going to go ahead and finish placing these lights, and get the car properly lit.
Then we'll talk about shooting in the car.
