dSLR Videography

In this talk I will share my thoughts on the emergence of dSLR video. I will also walk you through the challenges of shooting on this platform and how you can overcome those challenges. I’ll show you some of my work and more importantly some behind-the-scenes clips of that work being made to give you a feel for the requisite gear and grip to do the job right. So this is not Film School 101. Everything I discuss will be from the perspective of a photographer transitioning to shooting video... not the other way around.
