Shooting For Dance


Shooting Dance Seminar & Workshop: 1 Day/Evening

Students will receive thorough instruction and practical experience regarding:

-- white balance for the stage lighting

-- shooting movement in low lighting

-- counting to 7, not 8 - anticipating the moment

-- angles of action, rule of thirds

-- depth of field tricks and tips

-- equivalent exposures

-- better glass = better work

-- tripod versus handheld, implications for speed

-- aperture priority shooting versus all-manual

-- fine-tuning autofocus

First section will last approximately 3 hours, with access to stage and stage lighting appreciated but not mandatory - can be morning or afternoon session

Second section will consist of actually shooting a run-through or photo call. Shooting a run-through is always preferable if possible.

Third section will consist of using the remaining time to critique student work and debrief.

Appropriate audience: College students, Theatre Staff, etc

Participants should have their own (or borrowed) SLR Digital Camera & Lens (no point-and-shoot cameras please)

Shooting For Dance can also be geared as a "next step" event for those who have already attended Shooting For The Stage.
