I got the chance to hit up Dan Chung for a short interview while he was passing through Hollywood last week on his way to shoot in Lima, Peru. He has just released a new tutorial DVD with F-Stop Academy specifically designed for News Shooting with HDSLR cameras. He states in the interview that although HDSLR’s are not the perfect fit for news, they will add intimacy to any story. Here is a rip from the F-Stop Academy Website.
“Award Winning Photojournalist turned Film Maker Dan Chung has been shooting video as Photojournalist since 2006. In Late 2009 he swapped his EX-1 and started shooting Video on his D-SLR. Many Photographers are anxious about Video, however Dan Highlights that there are many similarities to stills and you don’t realise how much you already know that can be applied straight away
This is the Photojournalists guide to HD-DSLR Video taught while on a Real Assignment. Dan leaves nothing out in this jam packed 2hr ‘over the shoulder Masterclass’.”
