Background On The Shoot
“Shooting tethered video takes the guess work out of production and editing. Clients are impressed with a tethered shoot and once they experience the production value, will request the same each time.” – Eddie Tapp
The shoot was for a series of 10 educational videos instructed by photographer Judy Host with topics such as “How to get started in a career of photography”, “What equipment do I start with?” and “What do I need to know when photographing children?” The shoot was the “talking head” part of the instructional videos that will be released once a month for MyPix.com photographic lab.
