Shoot like a pro!

Many thanks to my good friend Mr. Corippo in California for sharing this great resource with us.

Here are a bunch of different camera techniques for producing professional quality video productions. Watch this presentation to see examples of each. You will be asked to take each of these shots on your own and put them together in your own "Shooting Gallery" using a different piece of technology.

REMEMBER THESE ARE 5-10 SECOND VIDEO SHOTS, NOT PHOTOS.

Download the shot sheet here.
