How to Set Up and Shoot Awesome Interviews with LED Lights from Vortex Media is all about making your presentations more professional and consistent. It doesn't matter what video camera you use, what questions you ask or what your budget is, without the proper lighting to make your subject look his/her best, the interview will not come off as a success.
This DVD, produced by a very seasoned and knowledgeable videographer/producer, will show you how to achieve the best results by not only teaching you the basics of good lighting, but various other aspects of shooting including camera placement, composition, depth-of-field, exposure, and white balance.
Doug focuses on LED lighting for several reasons. LEDs are cost-effective, lighter to carry around than traditional hot lights, are faster and easier to work with and are better for the environment since they require less heat to operate. The DVD will lead you through what you should have equipment-wise as well as steering you away from what you really don't need. Once you've mastered Doug's protocol, you may decide never to use your older tungsten lights again.
