If you’re not a news photographer or photojournalist, you may be put off by this tutorial purporting to be shooting HD video for a news assignment. But to do that would be a big mistake. While Dan Chung is a photojournalist (and indeed one of the finest around) this tutorial does not only deal with assignment shooting. Sure there are hints and tips on assignment shooting, but it is so much more than that.
The tips he imparts will prove useful to you no matter what genre of photography you shoot, and are equally valid whether you are a seasoned pro or enthusiast. Since Dan made the transition from stills to video, he is well placed to explain how that transition happens and the perils and pitfalls of shooting HD video with a DSLR.
The tutorial is ordered very sensibly so that you start with the basics and build from there through to the last chapter where you see Dan pull it all together in actually shooting his assignment.
If you follow everything in this tutorial you’ll be up and running in no time and will have neatly sidestepped all the problems you’d otherwise face. Dan deals with all the basic and advanced camera settings, recording sound, accessories to consider and actually working in a live environment.
Despite being 2 hours long, the tutorial is easy to watch and the time passes quickly. Dan presents the information in an easy to understand way that’s free of tech speak. The best part about the tutorial though is not that you’ll learn loads from it, it’s that it is equal parts educational and inspirational. You’ll come away from watching it wanting to take Dan’s final advice – get out and practice!
