This week’s show is a triple feature… we tackle three areas of the photo industry that are hot topics. First up, Scott Bourne interviews Rich Harrington about how to get started in DSLR video. Rich Harrington then takes the microphone and talks to Terry White from Adobe about changes at Adobe as well as Terry’s photography. Our third segment, Melissa Niu interviews Matt Kloskowski of Kelby Training to find out about how the photo industry is evolving.
How much light does your camera see? The aperture of your camera is its portal to the light in your scene (and without light, there are no pictures or video). Controlling the aperture is essential to getting the right amount of light on to your camera’s sensor to capture the best shots. There’s another side to aperture as well. As you open the aperture wider, you can narrow the depth of field in your shot, blurring more of the frame outside of your immediate focus area. This is often a hallmark of the “DSLR video” look. Mastering aperture is critical to high-quality video and photos.
This week we cover • What is aperture?
Learn why the aperture is critical to good exposure, and how to access it on your lens.
• A DP’s perspective on aperture
Catch up with director of photography Jim Ball and learn how he uses aperture when shooting in different situations.
• Adjusting the aperture
Learn how to make adjustments to the settings on your camera to get the best results.
• Real-world examples
We’ll evaluate several shots, breaking down what worked and what didn’t. Check out both the sample video above and this week’s complete episode on lynda.com. We’ll help you get the best exposure, and control the depth of field of your shots!

When it comes to capturing great images, exposure is critical. Under- or overexpose your shot and you lose precious details. But setting the proper exposure isn’t easy; your light may move behind a cloud, or change over time. When shooting video, exposure requires an almost scientific understanding of light. In this week’s DSLR Video Tips, we’ll show you a straightforward way to get strong, well-exposed shots. You’ll learn about
Exposing for video — What is the desired goal when exposing for video and when does it look “right”?
Balancing the exposure triangle – Learn how to balance the shutter speed, ISO, and aperture of the camera. It’s critical to get the right mix for both technical and artistic reasons.
