Creating a "Talking Senior Portrait" with Stills and Video

Hosted by Joe Brady on May 6, 2014
Sponsored by Sekonic and Benro


All of today’s cameras and smartphones feature video capture. Why is this important to a portrait photographer? Join host Joe Brady as he shows you how to incorporate video into a portrait shoot and make some money doing it.

Video capture is usually the easy part. Assembling the various pieces into your finished product is often the big problem for many photographers. This presentation will guide you through all of the steps from motion video, video with stills, recording sound and adding a music track.

Joe will show both gear and techniques to combine stills, video and sound that you can use to create a fun and special "Talking Portrait" that will have great appeal to both students and parents.

Talking Senior Portraits



Tools & Techniques for Photographing the Passage of Time

Tools & Techniques for Photographing the Passage of Time

Sponsored by Sekonic, Benro, and Induro

Photography is magical. You can use your camera to capture a fleeting moment and a passage of time in a single photograph.

In this webinar, Joe Brady will show you how to produce powerful and captivating images that combine flowing motion and amazing detail in outdoor scenic shots that include water. Then he will bring his camera into town to record locations over minutes to demonstrate how the flow of action creates results that are both telling and eerie.

Joe will be using the Benro Travel Angel II along with the Sekonic L-758DR light meter to show you how easy it is to get the perfect exposure information to make your flowing landscape – even when the exposure runs into seconds and even minutes to get the look you want.

Key tools for long exposures include neutral density filters and sturdy tripods. Joe will show how to use them and introduce you to some of his favorite support systems from both Benro and Induro to ensure that the static parts of the scene remain tack sharp.

The images created are fun and exciting, so join us for this informative and inspiring session.
