Part 1 .... Developing Skills Early

1 Take appropriate coureses in high school.

Fill your electives with subjects like photography and video graphy, if available. 1 if your school doesn't offer them directly, speak with your guidance counselor about any technological/vocational schools that may be audio/visual clubs, if no such courses exit.

As an alternative, take computer courses with curricula that touch on graphic editing. concepts learned here can help infrom later experiences with digital videos.

2 Apply for relevant jobs.

Spend your time in high school or college working for a company in a related field. Prioritize the experience that the position offers over pay. if necessary, volunteer your time. Use this opportunity to familiar yourself with equipment, lingo,,,,,,,,, and demands of a professional shoot. if necessary, settle for a position that will allow you observe, if not participate directly in the shoot. Seek positions with such organizations as:

  • Cable access channels

  • Independent film productions

  • Local news affiliates

  • Local videographers

  • Production companies

  • Supply stores or rental companies

3 Train yourself.

Regardless of the quality of the equipment you have on hand, practice both still and video photography on your own. Develop the skills necessary to compose shots and track moving objects in frame. Learn how to operate both handheld and mounted cameras.

  • Concentrate on the following aspects of photography/videography: color balance; field depth; frames per second; lenses; view angles.

  • Seize veery opportunity to cover events: volunteer for family functions like birthday parties, weddings, and reunions; use school functions like concerts, plays, and sports games for practice; attend other events like parades and reenactments.
