PRLog - May 4, 2011 - LITTLETON, Colo. -- Prominent photographer Sandy Puc’ and acclaimed Hollywood based cinematographer Jared Abrams collaborated to create the innovative 'If It Moves, Shoot It: Merging Motion and Stills' tour to over 15 cities in the United States. The tour kicked off in Denver on May 10, and is now making its way to Minneapolis. The tour aims to inform photographers of all skill levels on the powerful video capabilities featured on the popular DSLR cameras.
If It Moves, Shoot It
With the trend in photography moving towards the implementation of video to be expected and with digital video shooting now a common feature on many DSLR cameras, Puc’ and Abrams are excited to share their expertise and techniques in this in-depth look at the functions of these cutting-edge devices. Abrams' highly acclaimed skills in both still and moving photography along with Sandy's photography experience and marketing expertise combine to make this an impressive seminar that will help photographers and cinematographers utilize their cameras and their footage in the most beneficial way.
“I really enjoyed my first of many live seminars with Sandy! I walked away inspired to reach higher and work smarter, not harder,” says Christy Jenkins, of Jefferson, Indiana, after Sandy Puc’s Power of Passion tour rapped up earlier this spring. Puc’ devotes every ounce of energy she has to making learning fun and effective in hopes that attendees leave the show with the smarts and confidence to achieve their goals.
If It Moves, Shoot It promises to be a fully interactive seminar that will teach how to merge video and stills together to create products that will doubtlessly excite clients. Just some of the many techiniques that will be shared are a comprehensive tutorial on DSLR video functions and a breakdown of video shooting techniques and principles, including frame rate, focusing, tripod use, sound, workflow and more. By the end of the seminar, photographers will be able to shoot, edit and produce an array of videos with a variety of DSLRs.
“For me education is a life-long endeavor. Life as we know it is constantly changing, improving, being fine-tuned. What once was available to a select few is becoming mainstream. I am grateful to be a part of this new video movement and for Jared Abrams to share his extensive knowledge so that photographers can affordably learn about new techniques and have the necessary tools to be successful in their craft,” Puc’ says of her upcoming tour.
