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.
Richard Harrington: Hi! My name is Richard Harrington. Robbie Carman: And I am Robbie Carman. Richard: And we would like to thank you for joining us as we take a look at the essential skills needed for shooting DSLR video. In this course we are going to explore a new topic each week. Robbie: And Rich, we are going to take a look at these topics from the perspective of a Video Pro and a Video Enthusiast, as well as a Photography Pro Enthusiast. Richard: Yeah, I think that's important to realize that we are not going to make this just for people who are pros. If you are hardcore about getting better images, whether you relate more to photography or video, you should still enjoy this course. We have designed this so people of all experience levels who are serious about getting better will be able to improve their skills.
Robbie: Yeah, and Rich, we are not going to extrapolate on every single topic ad nauseam. Richard: No. Robbie: What we are going to do is be concise and direct about the essentials that we want to share with you, and we think that we should you know for shooting DSLR video. Richard: Yeah, and keep in mind that we have formed this opinions over years of working. We have both been shooting photography for years and working in the video fields. And this is an interesting time we live in, where these DSLR cameras are taking the best of photography and video and combining it into one body. So, we are going to make sure that what we share with you are real-world techniques that solve problems that we have used on actual productions.
Robbie: Now Rich, we have made the assumption though that if you are watching this title, you are already pretty comfortable with the basic operation of your camera. Richard: Right! Hopefully you have taken it out, you have shot a bit. Every camera is different, they do come with manuals that you can look at, and of course, for many cameras we have training here available on the lynda.com online training library. You are going to want to make sure that you have actually logged some time in the field shooting. This way when we talk about solving problems, you will experience some of these problems first hand. It's a lot easier to learn something when you have a point of reference.
Robbie: And Rich, I for one, am very excited about this title. I think it's going to be a great resource for not only people who are new to DSLR video, but for those who have been shooting for a while as well. Richard: Right, and in the course description there is an email listed where we'd love to get additional questions for future episodes. We are designing this to be an ongoing series. So each week you can log in and get a solution for one problem. Sometimes we will tackle it in 5 minutes, sometimes it may take 10. But we promise you that we are going to go ahead and dig in deep and get you an answer. But it's going to be concise and direct, so one problem, one week.
Keep joining us week after week, and as the library builds, feel free to jump around and find the solution to the problem that you are facing today.
