I don’t know about you but I find that it rather challenging to make the transition from years of shooting stills to shooting video. I’m still working on it. Video is a whole different ball game. A different way of thinking. I’ll never forget the first time I tried to shoot video with my new 5DMkII. After years of shooting video with a Canon G9 I took my new 5DMkii to a parade and tried to shoot some video of the grandkids. Wow! This is much harder than shooting with a G9!
Theres a lot of learning needed. Several readers have asked about resources for getting up the learning curve of shooting video with a DSLR . I’m always looking for resources for learning video because I’m still working on getting up the learning curve.
Recently I came across DSLR Filmmaking Tutorials by Marcel Fenchel and Moritz Janisch, two filmmakers based in Frankfurt, Germany. All about the basics of filmmaking. From planning and shooting a video to editing and color correcting the HD footage. I found them via their YouTube channel which is a fantastic resource for learning DSLR Video. I’ve become an instant follower of their YT channel and their site.
While this resource is not directly about property video it’s all basic DSLR video technique you need to learn to shoot property video.
