Last week we explored the benefits of shooting with multiple cameras for a professional video project. It turns out there’s a lot involved when setting up a shoot with multiple DSLR’s- preparation and planning are key. Finding the location that works for you is important, and lighting it for multiple cameras is a challenge.
On this week’s show, Robbie and Rich walk you through the key elements for a multiple DSLR camera shoot. They’re joined by Director of Photography Jim Ball for additional tips. You’ll learn the following:
• Preparing for a Multiple DSLR Camera Shoot. Learn what to think about before you shoot. Multi-camera is all about planning.
• Scouting the Location. Walk through a venue and learn to spot potential problems–and opportunities.
• Lighting for Multiple Cameras. Figure out how to work with available light and position new lights inconspicuously to enhance the scene.
• A DP’s Perspective on Multi-camera Lighting. Learn how a director of photography approaches a multi-camera production.
• Matching Cameras. You need to preserve seamless cuts between angles. Learn what needs to be done before you shoot.
