These days, many photographers are being asked to shoot video along with stills...and not just video clips, but video stories. If you’ve ever tried it, you realize quickly that it’s not just a matter of hitting the “Record” button in addition to the shutter release. 

This workshop, taught by National Geographic Society photographer and filmmaker Bob Krist,  is designed to help you learn to shoot short, cinematic, video stories, and it’s taught from the viewpoint of a still shooter making the transition; it will help you capitalize on your strengths, and overcome the pitfalls, that many photographers confront when facing a video assignment.
