Low light photography, YouTube broadcast and Magic Lantern
Thursday 20th November – 7.30pm at Film Oxford
We have three guest speakers this time: Roger Gilboy, John Twycross and David Perry.
Roger is going to talk about challenges of photography in low light conditions. John Twycross will cover Magic Lantern (freeware enhancement for Canon DSLR’s). Maybe some of you remember that last year David talked about YouTube tools such as branding, tagging and analytics functions. In the November’s presentation David will give us an update on the new features offered by the video platform, including live broadcast.
After the presentations the group will change the venue and continue discussions in Rusty Bicycle.
Making the Most of YouTube – David Perry
“We all know the statistics about how YouTube is the world’s most-used video hosting platform and the second most-popular search tool after Google itself. But as new features are constantly added, YouTube has evolved way beyond its initial role as purely a way to share video clips into a powerful marketing and social media tool. This session reviews some ways to get the maximum value from video content that you (or your clients) share online, as well as looking at how everyone can now use YouTube to broadcast live.
Roger is an Oxford based photographer and filmmaker who has an exhibition at the Town Hall, Oxford of photographs taken in Afghanistan whilst developing and idea for a documentary film. His talk will be about taking photographs in low light using only natural or available light. Photographs such as the image below of a casting in Pompei which won Roger an award earlier this year.
John will demonstrate how to install and run Magic Lantern, a program that runs on Canon DSLR cameras and provides a range of useful features for photography and video production. Enhanced features include graphic overlays, audio meters, exposure control and raw video. This is open source free software available for download on http://www.magiclantern.fm/.
