LEEDS DSLR FULL DAY WORKSHOP/ SEMINAR
On the 28th October I am taking my DSLR workshop/ seminar that I held in London recently oop north to the wilderness of Northern England. A brave thing for a southerner like me to do! 🙂
It’s at the Northern Ballet Theatre in Leeds so I will be teaching the whole thing through modern dance technique. Actually, let’s scrub that. That would be silly!
Why Leeds? Well I wanted somewhere that had good transport links to big cities all over the North. Birmingham was too south. Manchester too far from Newcastle and Leeds is a great city!
It will, as in London, take the form of an interactive seminar. The topics I will cover and more (more because it is guided by you! If you want more detail on things for me to cover, things not on the agenda, ask!)
I would call it intermediate. I will assume you already know the beginner basics of the cameras.
This is a one day class for a larger group to keep ticket prices down. But not so big that you are unable to ask what you want.
I won’t go over the mega basics as that will be a waste of time. If you want those please watch my Vimeo lessons.
These are some of the things we will cover in the London interactive workshop. You don’t need to bring any gear with you as there will be no actual shoot taking place, but you are welcome to bring your cameras to make a film of the day, in fact I encourage it!
Pros and Cons of the cameras and how to work around them.
The importance of sound. Techniques of sound recording. Tips and tricks. Dual system sound.
Camera movement. When to and when not to.
Lighting with DSLRs.
Documentary filmmaking. Interview techniques and working with DSLRs in this field.
large chip camcorders.
In depth timelapse lessons including motion controlled and HDR.
Post workflow. Conversion. Grading.
AND MUCH MORE
The rest of the day is guided by YOU! You ask what you want and we cover it. It’s a nice freeform style that encourages participants to get involved and ask. This is not a dry keynote workshop! BUT it will be a very full on day!!
There will be adult language occasionally and lots of dry British humour that I know will go down better than it did on my tour of Germany recently! (lots of tumbleweeds blew by!) 🙂
The key is that you will learn, it will be a lot of fun and you will get to meet a lot of great people.
All for the bargain price of £95!!
There will be a meet up afterwards! Location TBA
CANON PRO SOLUTIONS SHOW
Just a couple of days before Leeds, I will be in London for the second year running at the Canon Pro Solutions show. We are still working on what I will be talking about there, but it’s free registration and worth going along to see all the goodies there and listen to some fascinating talks!!
