Many of the newest DSLRs include HD video capability, and while the interest from the photography community was initially cool, we have seen a recent shift. Photographers are beginning to explore the video capabilities of their cameras and are eager to learn the art and craft of creating high quality video.
With the help of Mastering HD Video with Your DSLR (Rocky Nook, $34.95 USD), you will learn how to capture and edit video footage, and how to achieve the unique “motion picture look” and the effects that weren’t possible with standard digital video equipment.
Topics covered include mastering video concepts, specific video features of DSLRs, and equipment needed to shoot video; as well as the restrictions, problems, and pitfalls of shooting video with a DSLR. The authors use an easy-to-follow approach of introducing concepts, thoroughly explaining the process of shooting video, and finally, presenting step-by-step projects that take the reader from capture to editing.
Photographers who are ready to give HD video a serious try, as well as videographers who are interested in exploring the possibilities of DSLRs for their work, will find this book an indispensable source of technical know-how and inspiration. Mastering HD Video with Your DSLR is 240 pages and costs $34.95.
