You already have what you need to create cinematic videos about families -- your DSLR with video functionality and a camera strap! Join Emily Mitchell to overcome the learning curve and bring your images to life with motion, voices, and the magic of golden hour light. Handouts on music acquisition and gear list will be provided. Attendees will receive videos on editing after the conclusion of the conference. Attendees should be comfortable shooting in manual mode, and your video mode should allow at least aperture or shutter priority control, although full manual control is preferred. Before attending, you should read your manual and learn how to get your camera into video mode. It is recommended that you bring your manual, a DSLR with video function, a camera strap, and 1 or 2 of your favorite lenses.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about the job opportunities knowing DSLR video will create for you where you live.
2. Learn how to plan your shoot by familiarizing yourself with gear essentials and extras.
3. Learn about what to look for when scouting locations for dramatic light and how to achieve beautiful rim light, silhouettes, sun flare, and haze.
4. Understand technical information such as choosing the appropriate frame rate, how to stabilize your camera, how to pull focus on a stationary subject (rack focus), how to pull focus on a moving subject, and understand basic camera movements.
5. Learn how to capture quality, clean audio.
6. Learn a few basic rules for composition in the aspect ratio for video.

This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at Mission San Jose (just a short 15 minute bus ride from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1720, and known as the "Queen of the Missions," San Jose is the showpiece of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and tells the early story of San Antonio and European expansion in the New World.

The grounds of Mission San Jose is a huge area (over six acres inside the gates) that gives you ample room to photograph kids and families at play. The walls provide great framing opportunities, with many windows and doors all around the perimeter. There are also several stone walls (without doors and windows) if you are looking for plain stone backdrops. You’ll also find some interesting arches next to the church and at the entrance - they, along with the repeating doors and windows, give you the opportunity to use repeating elements in your composition. There are a few big trees throughout, but in many areas you’ll see the wide open sky. You’ll be able to use the walls to help you stay in the shade (if that’s what you are after) or partially block the sun. Because the Mission is massive and is outside of the city, you’ll find plenty of space for shooting outside of the walls as well. The outdoor grounds of Mission San Jose have been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors. There will be a wedding rehearsal going on inside the Mission San Jose Church, so we ask that you remain on the expansive outdoor grounds rather than venturing inside the church.

Although I love shooting stills, I am best known for pioneering lifestyle family films, and have been making films for 6 years. I love the magic of motion and music, together with the subtle nuances of movement and expression. Combined with beautiful light and the sound of laughter, films steal my heart. It's the closest thing to a memory you can create. | | I teach a DSLR Video Storytelling workshop specifically designed for... Read More →
