Russell Houghten takes us through some detailed methods of getting a smooth slow motion shot. First he shoots the same scene with four different cameras and compares their abilities to slow the motion (LOL at the VX glitching). He then takes us into After Effects and describes, very graphically, the coveted ramped slow-mo technique.
Manzoori goes through pretty much every option you have for on-camera lighting and breaks them down with examples. He even goes into the post-adjustments he makes to compensate for the grain incurred when shooting at higher ISO’s. All-in-all, an extremely advantageous episode.
Legendary skate photographer Grant Brittain drops a boatload of knowledge in this one. Most of what he is saying applies to not just shooting bowls but everywhere else too. So many good points in here, just watch it.
“I think it’s good to learn the rules first, and then break the rules.”
Follow filming can get complicated, so Manzoori takes us through pretty much every step needed to get it dialed in. Remember: Steadyshot OFF when the fisheye is ON.
In this week’s In Focus, Mike Manzoori talks about three basic accessories we should have to accompany our DSLR for filming- an external microphone, a viewfinder and a mini tripod. He takes us through some examples and shows us how to rig some stuff ourselves. All-in-all, a very helpful video.
Jason Hernandez goes through the basics of setting up a picture style on your DSLR in order to get the most dynamic and versatile image. Also he goes through the process of “digitally marking” a file on your camera in order to protect it from being deleted.
