Cinematography Basics using Apple Technologies Workshop

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Participants are invited to a workshop by Ron Seman, for a Cinematography Basics using Apple Technologies Workshop. It will include basic instructions on:

Why/when/how one would use different iPhone modes of TIME-LAPSE, SLO-MO, Cinematic, Video, and Screen Recording.

The use of various options in the modes including flash, night mode, action, HD 30, HD 60, 4K 24, 4K 30, 4K 60, and front facing camera lenses and the rear facing selfie lens and more.\

The apps of Photos, iMovie, and Google Photos will be reviewed and their role will be demonstrated. Editing, formatting, rotating, transitions, optional audio tracks, and other options will be demonstrated on an iPhone, and optionally on an iPad, Macbook, and iMac.

These basic principles apply to Android based smartphones, tablets, and computers as well; however, time does not permit the demonstration and discussion of both.

One can learn to make very high quality movies of nature, in the greatest biodiversity density in America at the Indiana Dunes, the Museum of Nature and Industry, as well as in one's homes for holiday movies, sports, vlogging and more. This is a great hobby which the whole family or friends can contribute to and participate in. Get motivated! Get creative! Get brainstorming! Get to the workshop!

We will have this workshop in motion on a hike! We will start the hike at 10:00 AM CST from the front entrance of the Pavilion at the Indiana Dunes State park. We will discuss and do videos and photos along the hike. Then those videos can be submitted for display to others via a Google Photos album for further discussion. We will proceed north to the beach and then west to the Beach West Lot then up to Bird Observation Platform and then onto Trail 3 for a loop and back to the Pavilion. It is considered flat and easy but does have about 75 stairs up from the Beach West Lot

Don't forget to bring your fully charged iPhone and/or iPad and please dress for the weather. As of 11/2/22 the weather forecast for Sunday, 11/6/22, is sunny with a low of 46 F to 64 F in the afternoon

The Pavilion is located at 1600 North 25 East, Chesterton, IN 46304. Google Map location: https://goo.gl/maps/n2zUWeY3Phd78VaP9
