Rate & Review

The Expanded Guides are much more than just camera and software manuals. Written by experts and with real-life examples, they are jargon-free and full-colour. They also include a quick reference wallet card (pictured), and "Photographer's Grey" coloured endpapers for metering. With such a comprehensive - yet accessible - approach, both amateur and professional photographers alike can release the massive potential of their systems, with superior results.

Shooting high quality movies on a digital SLR camera has become an exciting new genre of photography - and today's stills cameras have outstanding capabilities when it comes to the moving image. The Ammonite Press Understanding HD Video - The Expanded Guide is a comprehensive guide to the research, planning and pre-production processes necessary before creating a movie. It asks the fundamental question: "What are you trying to say with the film?" Is it a documentary or a drama, or a professional quality record of a memorable holiday, wedding or other once-in-a-lifetime event? From assembling your team - director, producer, lighting, audio, costume and make-up, actors - to obtaining all the equipment you'll need, the book gives expert advice on camera settings, shutter speeds, lenses, filters, audio considerations and lighting requirements. Practical information is given on how to shoot standard and wide-angle shots, panning techniques, how to capture action with the use of dollies and other motion aids, and how to make sure your sequences are crisply in focus. Post-production hardware, software and techniques are discussed, including importing files, reviewing footage, synching audio, colour grading, rendering and exporting. A final chapter briefly discusses various post-production/editing techniques such as workflow, colour grading and adding narration. The book comes with a pullout quick reference card.
