Today’s creative Friday post comes from the recent SWPP show that was held in London.
We know that DSLR/compact systems cameras are able to shoot high quality video, but not many photographers are taking advantage of it. From the SWPP session it was clear that there are some people that would like to experiment with video, but are concerned that it’s too complicated when editing the footage in post. The other aspect to video is that it is very complimentory when used with your still images to provide more context. This “how to” video will take you through the journey of taking footage from the DSLR/compact systems camera and turning it into a 40 second video, as well as showing how you are able to use standard Photoshop re-touching techniques to solve a few technical issues. It will also show how to take footage from a YouTube/Vimeo channel and host onto your Behance page to show other creatives your story.
The Burma/Myanmar story that I have used as an example in this video can be found here.
Adobe will be at the UK Photography show in March, and will be holding free seminars on how to edit video as well as other Lightroom and Photoshop techniques and new features. More information about the seminars are available here Photoshop / Lightroom.
If this is something that you would like to try and don’t have access to Photoshop, then why not take a 30 day trial and have a go.
