Cinematography Workshop: Camera, Lenses and Lights

This 6-hour workshop will cover three areas:

Exploring Digital Camera Settings: Introducing “normal” camera settings (shutter speed, white balance, frame rate, SLog etc.) using the Sony FS5 cinema camera as a way to explore “abnormal settings” for more artistic expression through most digital cinema cameras

Exploring Lenses:  Working with focal lengths and storytelling, 4 factors of depth of field, prime vs. zoom, adaptors and speed boosters, lenses and “full frame” sensors

Exploring Grip and Electric: Learn about light quality, intensity, color & direction using the lights and grip equipment in the AFS Inventor
