How Did He Do That?
As a member of a number of photography related groups on Facebook, I often read questions from people new to photography about their confusion in the technical aspects of shooting great photos. (not "captures", I hate that term).
So I've been playing around with the idea of producing short instructional videos that dive into the process of producing, shooting and editing images directed at the newcomer to this wonderful experience.
Obviously my workflow will differ from some people's, but that is expected. That's not the point. The point is that I can help to clear the air in regards to the methods that I incorporate as I go from idea to execution and final image. People can then take this knowledge and apply it to their own experiences.
I have a feeling that I know how I would go about it, but I'm not clear if there is any serious interest. Do I have competition? Yes. Youtube is flooded with "how-to" videos that tell people how to set up a camera, edit an image and all sorts of things. But is there a succinct video that shows the entire production in a clear and concise manner. Perfect for beginners. Simple, without an emphasis on any one gear manufacturer. Something that both grandma and the 5th grader could use.
