their profession through the apprentice system, using their employers' expensive equipment for on-the-job training. Today it is possible to make a high-quality movie or television program using a camera that costs under $5,000; as a result, many people have the equipment, but few know the craft. Aspiring camera operators can easily pick up some basic mechanics of camerawork, but they have few resources to learn the real craft of capturing effective footage. Not only must shooters learn how to choose and handle the right camera and accessories, but they must master many other techniques and tools of the trade to succeed in today?s increasingly integrated craft of modern storytelling.

Video Shooter is a guide to both the mechanics of the video camera and the craft of shooting. Written by a veteran in the industry and utilizing an engaging, conversational style (including illustrative anecdotes from the author's many years of experience), the book takes the reader beyond "button pushing" to teach the complete range of skills required to capture compelling images. Topics include equipment selection, camera setup and operation, shooting techniques, and working with lighting and audio. Although the techniques illustrated in Video Shooter are appropriate for users of a wide range of camera models, the book focuses on the most popular 3-CCD DV and HDV cameras. A chapter on issues and techniques relating to DVD output makes the book especially suitable for industrial, educational, and government video producers. The book also features a companion DVD with tutorials, footage demonstrating storytelling techniques, and technical matter such as a comparison of various filters.
