Your Hybrid Sheroes Talk Video Techniques

We’ve all discovered the joy of adding movement to our products. Whether it’s storytelling with families, capturing sports, making weddings more magical or spicing up corporate photography, adding video is enhancing our creativity and adding so much to our client’s delight. AND there’s a learning curve here, a pretty hefty one. So a piece at a time we’re putting together new skills and mastering new techniques.

In this Hybrid Hangout the Sheroes talk about their favorite techniques and some that they’re hoping to explore soon. We touch on movement from vehicles, panning with sliders, panning to build to the reveal of the subject, using a jib to add vertical movement as well as horizontal, using interview techniques to draw out the best emotions, recording with filters for effect and more. Each of the Sheroes has a different specialty from travel to sports to corporate to family to wedding, and we span the globe from California to Canada to England.

Have a listen. Comment on your favorite techniques. Get inspired to try new ideas with your video!

About the Author:

After 20+ years in a computer tech job, Carol Schlintz is enjoying a second and more fulfilling career as a portrait and sports photographer in suburban Milwaukee. Like many of us, she has met with some personal challenges and is in need of reducing the physical strain from carrying heavy pro cameras and lenses around. Not one to take "no" for an answer, she jumped in with both feet and no safety net. As of April 2012 Carol has retired her big DSLR's and picked up a couple of small, light mirrorless cameras and is now using them on every shoot. Vlogging here on discovermirrorless, as well as sharing and swapping ideas with the other Hybrid Heroes (and the viewers!) is part of her process of evolving from a still photo only photographer into a photo+video+audio hybrid image maker. Count on Carol to share what works, what doesn't, and all the steps in becoming Milwaukees first hybrid photography studio that specializes in making and selling eProducts.

    SHEROES rock! Thanks for this great conversation – it sparked some creative ideas. I love the talk about movement and getting the camera on tracks and jibs. I hadn’t considered using the artistic settings on my GH3 for video. But hey, it sounds interesting and I’ll experiment on my family :) Thanks again!
