About: Offers you the skills needed to shoot high quality footage of your work in the field. Skypunch Creative has been helping scientists document their research since 2011, and everything they've learned in that time we put into A Scientist’s Guide to Shooting Video in the Field. It’s full of tips and illustrations to help you capture every detail of your fieldwork, even in difficult situations and remote locations.
Excerpt: "Imagine a film where all the shots are taken from the same distance. No close-ups of Angelina Jolie’s piercing blue eyes. No panoramic vistas of the Martian landscape. Pretty boring, right? One of the easiest ways to add variety to your film is to vary the distance between your camera and your subject. And to shoot like a pro, you only have to remember three basic shots: wide, medium, and close-up."
