NOOR Multimedia Training with Pep Bonet



It is only a few years, really, that DSLR cameras have an options to also shoot HD video. When the first cameras with this option came out many people believed that it would change the industry in the sense that photo editors would get a more important role in picking stills from the footage that photographers would shoot.

That did not happen. Instead the movie and broadcast industry embraced DSLR cameras and photographers, having the advantage to have known these cameras for years already, started slowly moving in the direction of film making. At the same time the price of semi-pro and pro DSLR cameras went down, which made the cameras affordable for a larger audience.

With the cameras getting more complex with lots of different options to enhance your photography or film making on the one hand. And with them becoming more affordable on the other hand, the need for training on all kinds of levels arose.

This workshop is made to answer as many questions as possible not only technical questions, but also on how to execute and mix the medias properly. Because many important questions and issues arise when photographers go in the direction of filmmaking from when to shoot photo and or video and the new language needs to be well understood before trying to achieve a good result.
