September Meeting

27 08 2010

September 8, 2010

“Light & Sound”
Improve the Quality of Your Audio & Lighting

September’s meeting will feature elements of a small corporate production recently completed by some of our members. If you normally shoot mostly weddings you might not give much thought to lighting and audio beyond lav mics and reception lights. But what do you do if you are hired to produce a small corporate video? We will demonstrate different types of microphones, explain camera settings for audio, audio monitoring, signal to noise ratios, environmental conditions, softbox lighting, backdrop & hair lighting as well as exposure & white balance.

Is the equipment expensive? Not necessarily. We’ll talk about lights and audio at different price points.

We’ll even show software to turn your Mac or PC into a functioning teleprompter – and give it away to all attendees who bring a thumb drive. All in one meeting!
