Professional photographers are finding that adding video to their list of offerings for clients is becoming paramount to their survival in a competitive landscape. And with the addition of high-resolution video capabilities to the latest batch of DSLR cameras on the market, photographers now have a convenient and familiar tool to fully embrace the new world of video. Here to guide them on all aspects of video--from preproduction to post--are four veterans of film, video, and photography who speak the language of photography fluently and will ease their transition from still to motion. Within the book, readers will learn how to plan their shoots, what gear they'll need, how to properly light for motion, how to achieve professional-level audio, the specifics on color-correction and editing footage, various options for output, and artistic techniques such as stop-motion and time-lapse photography. The accompanying DVD contains hours of training that delves even deeper on each topic, allowing visual learners to work right alongside the authors as they put together their own projects or use the accompanying high-definition files included on the disc. To demonstrate all the concepts in action, a full, real-world example from a live music video and artist promo package runs throughout the book, and interviews of expert photographers in diverse fields such as fashion, art, aerial, wedding/event photography, and more, are included to give an array of examples from various art forms.
