In this hands-on session, USA TODAY photographer & tech columnist Jefferson Graham, the host and producer of the popular "Talking Tech" video series, shows photographers how to improve their video skills.
Jefferson will demonstrate using the same DSLR camera for weddings and portraits to also make high quality video, showing students the tricks to focusing on the LCD, exposure and proper audio techniques. The class will get everyone out of their seats to work on a sample promo video for a local business, one of the most popular categories on YouTube and Facebook. Afterwards, Jefferson will import the footage and group edit the piece on the spot, showing how to quickly assemble a promo video. (For more in-depth and hands on with video editing, sign up for the Sunday "Introduction to Video Editing" class with Marc Franklin.) Topics covered include: camera settings, how to focus on the LCD of the DSLR, telling the story, setting up your shots and workflow.
Bring your DSLRs and your energy!
