CSC Workshop

Workshop: High Speed

High speed photography is another tool in the cinematographer's creative belt that should be thoroughly understood. This workshop will give you those skills.

The art of high speed photography has evolved quite rapidly in recent years. As digital capture technology has advanced, so has the accessibility of high speed imaging systems. This workshop will explore two main aspects of high speed photography.

We will look at specialized systems like the Phantom family of high speed cameras as well as the Weiscamm. We will cover in-depth, any particularities of each of these systems and go over pros and cons. Participants will come away with an in-depth knowledge of the system.

Understanding how lighting will impact your high speed photography is paramount to having a successful shoot. Can you use HMI? What is "arc wander". Which tungsten units can I use? These questions and more will be answered.

We will also touch on the challenge that can be encountered when wanting to incorporate camera movement in extreme high speed shots and touch on the theory of how to evaluate what speed something should be shot at.

As with all CSC workshops we offer hands-on learning and exploring. Sample scenarios will be executed. In addition we will recreate problems and show you how to solve them.
