Workshop - Video Photography presented by Orin Siliya

The event was held on Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

Make your camera do more than stills. Action in sports with children and many other exciting, family, nature and action vidoes are possible even with your DSLR.

In this workshop, we're going to talk all about video cameras and how to make them do what they do which is tell your story with pictures. And of course, we're going to talk about action. And by action, I mean how to tell your story with movement. And of course, I'm going to talk all about audio and how to make your projects actually sound as good as they look, the whole idea of this course is to give you a solid foundation in the basics of video film making. Whether you are shooting a short personal film, your first documentary or just a promotional video for your company or your church.

Topics include:

  • Exploring the different types of video cameras
  • Understanding how to focus
  • Shooting with shallow depth of field
  • Understanding exposure
  • Using ND filters to correct overexposure
  • Using gain to brighten an underexposed shot
  • Choosing the right shutter speed and ISO
  • White-balancing a shot
  • Working with a tripod
  • Shooting handheld
  • Using a boom microphone vs lapel mic
  • Setting up a 4-point lighting scene
Orin is a previous presenter with Stony Brook and will generously work to teach participants how to move into this action focused approach during this workshop. He is a photographer, cinematographer and sound engineer.

He says "Videography and Filmmaking is my passion because it is one of the most challenging and rewarding things I think that anybody can try. I've been shooting videography and indie films since 1997 for 20 years now.  It's a really special art form that combines a dozen different crafts and disciplines all into one. It involves aspects of photography, audio recording, acting, fine arts, music etc."
