  • 6-630\n\nReview a few\n\nMissing interviews from Michael, Morgan\n\n\n
  • Respect your sources (they are doing you a favor so respect their time and be sensitive to their needs/values but remember that they said “yes” to you b/c they want to do this. If you act too cringing and apologetic they won’t trust you). Be flexible to their schedule. Send a thank You. \n\nBe Prepared for Emotion: Often in this field you are dealing with people in emotionally intense circumstances (lost jobs, traumas revisited, vulnerability) be prepared for people to cry or get angry and allow them to.\n\nRepresent yourself honestly and professionally: For this class you can say that you are working NDM but when you are freelancing or “on spec” you have to reveal that to sources (you can say “I’m freelancing but in conversations with NYTimes about placement”)\n\nDon’t take things personally: People are wary of the media/journalists, they’re also often emotional about what they’re talking about/showing you. The challenge of being a journalist is finding a balance btwn being present and authentic and remaining neutral/retaining journalistic distance.\n\n\n\n\n

  • Interview shots\n\nIf you can, two camera interviews give you something to cut away to. Wider 2 shot for body language, they can also roam for details\nEasier editing b/c you can make jump cuts with the audio\n\nNotice how both cameras are on same side. Sometimes long dist between the two, sometimes short.\n\nEven if you’re doing one cams, think about which of these you’re trying to get.\n\nAlso think about the zoom on the one camera interview\n

  • 745-815\n\nVideo Portrait -- like we took their snapshot, but over time.\nWhat we really want is them thinking about what we were talking about \nSometimes this just happens naturally. \nWhat’s he thinking?\nWe already talked about how we need to get room tone, and getting people to sum up, and getting a vid portrait -- so there’s a great way to do that all at once.\n\n
  • 815-900 \nPair people up.\nCapture at least 10 full sentences\nRemember to listen to what they say so you know what’s good later. Take notes\nWe have to get good audio, so go out in the hall\nShort character study: interview your project partner and pull out one anecdote that reveals an unexpected truth or backstory that reveals something about their character.\n\nCome back after for debrief: 9:30\nWas that hard? That’s why you need a helper\n\n\n\n

  • Set up the camera, let the action happen in front of it\n
  • Or if they’re your family or friends they get used to you.\nHow does Sarah feel here?\n
  • Kneeled Down\n
  • Think about depth -- more than one element in the photo\n
  • Think about framing\nLook at professional photos, almost always many layers and stuff cut out of the frame.\n
  • Other secret tips\n
  • What do you notice about focus in the picture?\nThats what depth of field means\nYou can control it with the F Stop. Size of the little hole light goes through.\nBigger, more light, less depth of field\nDon’t need to know why, just know it will make you look pro.\n
  • Compare these two. Which has a shallower “depth of field”\nYou can control it with the F Stop. Size of the little hole light goes through.\nBigger hole, more light, less depth of field. Don’t need to know why, just know it will make you look pro.\n
  • You can adjust f-stop on most cameras. On HV30 if you go into manual mode. \n
  • Lower F stop number or use the flower icon.\nAlso allows for low light shooting\n\nAgain here, showing something our eyes can’t see.\n
