Tuesday Tuts: Shutter Speed for DSLR Video

For those of you who are crafting fusion pieces or trying out the video capabilities of your DSLR, it might seem like your camera just became an entirely different animal. Some of the settings you’re used to for photography are no longer what’s needed for video. Hopefully, I’ve got a few tips that can help!

We’re kicking off a series of DSLR video tips and tuts with some info on shutter speed. Watch and learn why NOT to use the same settings as when you’re taking photos.

Oh, and also… the wall dance.

My first demo video! Yep… I dislike seeing myself on camera just as much as anybody else does. ;)

Well, was that helpful? What other topics would you like to see covered in a video tutorial?

Bonus tip: What do you do when working in situations with a lot of light, since you can’t raise the shutter speed? Try using a neutral density (ND) filter. This cuts down the light coming into the camera (without changing the color tone = neutral) and can allow you to keep your aperture wide open, even in bright sunlight.

P.S. If you want to offer eye-catching fusion pieces to your clients, but learning all this video mumbo-jumbo is just not your cup of tea… we do that! Email hello AT jakfoto DOT com for details! ;)
