The 24th & 25th of January will see the first DGPix workshop to feature video techniques, held at the Discovery Centre on Oxford Island. In the past we've always concentrated on introductory wildlife photography courses which have proved very popular, but as in any creative discipline, you need to reach out to new techniques and methods.
I've been using GoPro action cameras for a good few months now to record time lapse scenes, slow motion video and underwater wildlife. Shooting up to 4k resolution, and up to 240fps, these are very affordable little cameras and as they have been proving very popular, it seemed natural to add the GoPro and its techniques to the latest workshop.
Digital SLR's have been able to shoot HD video for years now, but as cameras get ever more cheaper, HD wildlife filming is becoming a reality for everyone. We'll be covering DSLR video techniques, as long as the usual photographic content and tuition.
And lastly, as the revolution of trail cams continues, it would be daft not to bring these brilliant little cameras on to the courses. We'll be covering mainly the Bushnell models, but techniques are applicable to all makes and models.
Here's hoping the Photo/Video workshop will be as successful as our other established workshops throughout the year!
