DSLR video Workshop and Seminars
The PDN PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo is an annual photography event for professionals, students, educators and advanced amateurs interested in the photography and business development such as commercial, editorial, wedding, portrait and art photography, among others. The PhotoPlus photography conference includes photography courses, seminars, lectures and workshops taught by some of the world’s finest photography instructors and artists on subjects such as lighting and posing, wedding photography, business and marketing, social media, software and workflow, and video and multimedia.
Attending a DSLR video or cinematography workshop for photographers may be one of the best ways to gain insight into this rapidly developing art form and the new technologies associated with it. The synergy of video and still camera functionality in the DSLR camera has created a creative and technical crossover that photographers and cinematographers need to know all about. A DSLR video workshop is a great way for photographers and videographers alike to learn how to use the video and audio recording features on a DSLR camera, get prepared for cinema-style shooting, and successfully merge still images and motion into a common production. Such DSLR cameras can now be accessorized with lenses, constant lighting solutions, microphones and much more, and shooting video on a still camera requires an appreciation of frame rates and aspect ratios, which are usually covered on DSLR video workshop agendas. DSLR video workshops at PhotoPlus may be ideal for photographers looking to transition into video or cinematographers looking to use new technology. Recent DSLR video workshops at Photo Plus included The Moving Portrait: Up to the Minute Information on HD Filmmaking Tools & Techniques by Bruce Dorn; Storytelling for a New Era – 2.0 by Corey Rich; Intro to Digital Cinema by Eduardo Angel; HDSLR Cinema by Alex Bruno; and The Documentary Hybrid: Photography and Filmmaking by Lauren Greenfield among others. Since this is a new technology and new area of learning for many camera owners, such DSLR video workshops are designed to encourage learning, creativity and experimentation and to address the fears and concerns of photographers looking to add digital cinema to their business offerings.
The PhotoPlus conference is typically structured for anyone to purchase a pass that’s most suitable for their educational needs, available time or budget. The PhotoPlus Conference and Expo is held each October at the Javits Convention Center in New York City and regularly attracts over 250 exhibitors and nearly 22,000 attendees.
