Hybrid Training: Putting It All Together

This is my first attempt at making a Hybrid Video project. I used a minimal about of equipment so I could concentrate on the video and still photography.

The stills were shot using a Lumix GH3 either in the Program or Aperture priority mode. The video was all shot in the program mode so I could focus on the content and not the camera at this stage in my learning. Since I promised that this series would be about my learning to shoot video I’m posting this early version of the video that I know has some flaws that I will learn to fix and then talk about  in future episodes.

While I was putting this project together in ProShow Producer I realized how important sound is. I also found that I have a tendency to get attached to certain photos and videos that make the project a little too long. Stay tuned for future episodes as I continue to learn this exciting new style of photography.

Thanks for watching.

    Hi Petey,

    I used Lightroom 4 to edit the individual video clips and adjust the color of the still and video files. I then used Pro Show Producer to put the videos and stills together into the video you see in my post.
