Using your digital SLR for video production

Date: Private, Ongoing

Description: Kip Evans will be offering a workshop demonstrating how to use your digitial SLR camera for video production.

As technology moves the worlds of photography and filmmaking closer, we are excited to offer a very special hands-on educational experience where you will be able to explore the opportunities now available by utilizing the DSLR technologies that blend the traditional boundaries between motion and still.

Kip is actively using the HD SLR technology in his current production work both above and below the surface. With instructional time spent in both the field and in the classroom, this workshop will cover information on camera applications, menus, lighting, workflow, post-production options and tips specific to underwater asset acquisition. Balancing creative opportunity with technical understanding, this full day event is designed to provide you with skills to capture beautiful moving images by optimizing the creative possibilities of this breakthrough technology in the digital still camera.

Our day will begin with a morning hike where we will shoot a variety of subjects ranging from landscape scenes to wildlife found on our topside expedition. Then in the afternoon we will return to the classroom to process our footage and create a short video project. Don’t miss this chance to broaden your videography skills and further develop your understanding of the DSLR video production process while experiencing the inspiring scenery of the iconic Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel, California.
