Videography shooting workflow

Whether you are looking to create quality DSLR videos for your business’ social media, produce your own high-end content, want to follow DSLR and mirrorless systems tutorials or find out more about the difference between mirrorless versus DSLR cameras, ExposureWorks can help.

During our videography workshops we go through lots of topics that can be difficult to remember afterwards. Whether you’ve been to one of my 1-to-1 courses or not, whether you’re shooting on a DSLR, a mirrorless system or a high-end camera, here are some of the key settings and considerations to think about as you are getting ready to shoot. (If you’d like to download and print a copy, scroll down to the bottom of the page for a direct link.)

Happy shooting!
