Nowadays, science and technology have gained tremendous development. Only a decade ago, the application of social network was not yet a common practice, camera phones were exclusively available for the rich, and digital cameras were still in megapixels, but who would have thought that the denial of access to a social network site would give rise to endless complaints? Today, those who are able to afford a digital SLR camera and lens can make short films of all sorts, as film shooting no long needs countless devices operated by dozens of people.
Websites exert a greater influence on people than television for the time being. A perfectly shot short film can get over millions of hits online. Besides, things are more easily shared on social network sites than TV programs. Therefore, I have expanded my working area from photo taking to film making. After all, I am well equipped with professional knowledge learnt from a film & television academy.
There are significant differences in preparing and making short films, most of which are also shot by SLR cameras. As for short films with dialogues, special attention must be paid to the surroundings. Even a small amount of noise would affect the quality of filming. Moreover, careful preparations must be made ahead of schedule. Site selection, time, shooting order, and the position of the lens are all closely linked with each another. No plan may end in disarray on the spot as well as a loosely-structured production.
Panning shot is commonly used in film shooting. Most of the film subjects have something to do with automobiles. Characteristics of automobiles could merely be embodied by motional images. We must focus quickly and accurately. As a result, we’d better choose shockproof and ultrasonic motors equipped with a new focusing system. Then you’ll have no problem shooting games like roadster races.
Film shooting requires much more than photo taking on a tripod. Because filming devices are much heavier and bigger, except for SLR cameras. The camera head for film shooting, heavier and bigger than others, needs hydraulic resistance to shoot better motional images. Generally speaking, the camera tripod ought to be reliable rather than portable.
Both cameras with large and small bodies have their own advantages. The GoPro in vogue, in particular, is able to easily provide you unprecedented views with its wide-angle lens, sucker or monopod. For example, operated by the racing driver during the race, the camera can get all the steering movement clearly. Even in a helicopter, high angle pictures could be taken, especially in a large-scale environment with greatly undulate terrains where it’s hard to reach.
Photography is an industry that keeps up with the times. It’s still unknown that whether there will be any further hardware advances. With the progress of the time, we can be ahead of all others and well prepared for the next generations only if we keep tabs on the latest news and know all about new technologies
