Visual Approaches to Documentary
SHOOTING WITH INTENT
Learn how to consistently capture powerful images that enhance your non-fiction storytelling
Even if … you don’t have an expensive camera
Even if … you’ve already started shooting
Even if … you’re overwhelmed with no idea where start or how to shoot
In this 90-minute online workshop you’ll discover:
A ready-to-use framework for capturing an intentional look and “”cinematic”” feel to your shots
How to set yourself up for a successful shoot – long before you ever turn on the camera
How to maximize your limited shooting time and get the most essential shots to tell your story
How to develop unshakable confidence in yourself as a one (wo)man shooter or low-impact small-crew filmmaker
Also included: [FREE PDF] Documentary Shooter’s Cinematic Camera Checklist.
