Photography VS Videography

June 28, 2019

All right quick little update before we start today's video I just want to give you as an update on the hashtag harmony Maddie Thunderdome challenge you guys saw I posted all six of the videos sorry if that annoyed you but a lot of people won't see them but I'm gonna be making the decision this week on who I'm gonna be hiring as my editor so stay tuned for that I don't know what day it's gonna be but uh this week I'll make the decision all right enjoy the video all right so if you guys don't know not Peter but another guy that's that's my brother he obviously kind of looks like me he's a really good videographer but also a photographer and I think he started out as a

photographer first and I thought it would be interesting to do a video on on the differences between camera settings in photography and videography especially because I think a lot of people nowadays they've been doing photography but they're starting to get into videography and I see a lot of people like that who are coming from in the photography world they're doing these kind of like really rookie mistakes with camera settings because there's just a lot of differences some of them are are pretty much the same but some of them are completely different so let's go through camera settings in

photography and videography what are the differences and why it matters all right I'll catch up with the guys now anybody huh where'd they go they left me behind guys anybody here Oh doesn't it suck getting left behind kind of kind of brings back memories of being a kid and then getting lost we actually used to play this trick on my younger brother where we'd be in a grocery store or like a clothing store and me and my older brother my mom would be off somewhere we'd be taking care of my younger brother and we were just like we would hide my brother would flip I think you had this trauma of being left

behind I was just I was just telling them about the how we would with Micah we would we would hide when we were at a store so you would think that you're by yourself and lost traumatized for life sure sure with my therapy soon it's so good guys do you think we look we look the same especially right now with uh with uh same haircut - pretty much I'm the more answer one I'm not wearing a hat today like I just a dancer not handsome answer answer I make my own English all the time I thought I lost you guys for a second I was it was

bringing back my childhood trauma this is the first time you've met my brother how is he double the Madi I let's talk about camera settings photography versus videography but let's found a better spot to do this got away from my brother he's stuck I didn't make it up the hill I suck he's still learning the whole one-wheel thing it's a it's a little bit tricky they told me to go full on and I went full on but I just went right into the dirt there so I thought I would talk about the video land settings because I'm I really no film settings more and I know some photography but you're the photography master between the two of us at least so why don't you talk through the photography camera basic settings so first off let's talk about shutter speed and both photography land and videography land shutter speed affects the motion blur in the photo now

it's a little bit different why don't you talk about photography first and how you can use it as an exposure tool whereas a videography land you can alright so when you're shooting photos you can set the shutter speed to decide what kind of exposure you're gonna have so if it's really bright out you can make the shutter speed really high roll it up you can hire two one eight hundred and if it's really dark out you can just boost it really low maybe Lois you want to go as 180th because if you go lower than that it's fine actually to sharp anymore too much blur you can use that to get the exposure right so in photography you can use shutter speed as kind of an exposure or tool you're

changing the exposure but in videography you have to stick to double whatever your frame rates is so if you're filming in 24 frames per second you have to have your shutter speed at 48 and that's because it drastically changes the look of your video clips if you have a different shutter speed so if it's too low it's gonna be a little bit like dream like a little bit weird if it's too high it's really stuttery staccato and you can use those as as creative tools but for the most part you're doing double whatever your frame rate says and

that's why you use something like this an ND filter ND filters super important mady's number one rule always use an ND filter and i was so against it for so long but now i understand what he's talking about for filmmaking I believe I also got Peter and and D filters but ND filters you you can't use a shutter speed as an exposure tool to just bump it up so you use an ND filter to make it darker and keep that double the frame rate shutter speed it's called the 180-degree shutter rule so that's the big difference between shutter speed and photography and videography next we're gonna talk about aperture or f-stop and actually in both of our lands it's pretty much the same right like it's just a creative decision pretty much yeah yeah so if you want a shallow depth of

field you're gonna use a really low aperture like there you go if you want a deep depth of field you need a lot of things in focus the background on the foreground you're gonna make it a higher numbered f-stop so for the most part they're pretty much the same but I think the big difference would be that in video you have to do a lot of manual focusing yeah and so if you're filming out let's say F and you're not very good at manual focusing then you're gonna miss focus a lot so that's something you have to kind of think about and with photography you kind of had the luxury that autofocus is so good now a good even with Canon you can still just lock that focus in and you're good to go

getting that sweet sweet bouquet as money talks about oh yes we booked it yeah so so it's a little bit different but it's pretty this one's pretty much the same it's a creative decision and this one's your biggest creative decision choosing how much depth of field you have next we're gonna talk about color profile so we've talked about this before log profile in video you want to shoot as flat as possible but in photography land doesn't matter at all doesn't matter raw and you can just change it to whatever you want afterwards yeah so raw is even better than a log profile you're not baking anything in whereas in video land you're usually baking things in so raw you don't need to shoot flat it's okay then another thing in video land you have to think about is frame rates whereas in photography you just snap that one photos doesn't

really matter other than if you're trying to get like a sports shot or something like that super fast like well why don't you do like like you were using my camera the other day and you're like why don't you have it on continues why do you do continuous yeah for example I like using the continuous shooting drive mode because I want to send app three four photos in one instance rather than just one shot at a time because someone's eyes just closed and then I missed that moment if I only did one photo so I do 3/4 of

the time to get the shot the kiss you know at the front of the alter boo boo boo boom right yeah yeah whereas in video it's it's a it's a totally it's a big thing you have to choose you know you want to film at 24 frames per second 60 frames so 30 frames per second and all those make a really big difference in the look and the key here is you I'm sure I agree with me real time always film 24 frames per second you can notice right away when some right away frames per second and you're a cringy like why is that 30 or 50 or even worse yeah so real time always 24 frames per second don't listen to the gamers 24

frames per second is the best or the sports enthusiast yeah it's just but if you want to do slow-motion that's when you use you know 50 60 120 frames per second and then you conform it to 24 frames per second so that's a big thing when you're coming from photography land you need to know bigger is not better here like it more frames per second isn't necessarily better it's gonna be a worse look alright so what we're gonna do now is we're gonna we're gonna battle it out photography versus videography and we're gonna kind of go through showing you guys how we change our settings which settings have changed first what do you choose why you choose it and then so you'll do

photography and then I'll do a video clip so you have two photo of me and I'll do a video clip of mouth kid all right let's do it so we're gonna we're gonna take out let's take a photo with this tree this tree is kind of cool you know get something sweet look at that a nice bouquet oh yeah that nice book alright so talk me through what are you doing if you need to take a photo of me right now what are the setting first you gotta know where you're shooting so if you're shooting outside you have a lot of lights so if you have a lot of light I first start with the ISO I'm gonna put it as low as possible because I don't need any extra artificial light so I put two ISO 100 then after that I'm going to decide do I want a shallow to the field or add well do I want really sharp

photos so I'm gonna be a portrait someone I want shelled a field so I'm gonna do or less but if I'm doin landscape I probably do 5 point 6 or above once I got the ISO I got the f-stop decided then I decide what shutter I need in order to get the right exposure so simple as that ISO f-stop shutter speed now we were just talking about ISO and I actually realized that we didn't talk about ISO ISO is the same the higher the ISO and photos and video the worse your photos gonna be so you want to keep it as low as possible but if it's dark and you need to bump it up a little bit that's okay too but always try to keep it as low as possible like my brother said when it's outdoors keep it low alright so that was the photography side now we're gonna do videography so how I would start things as first I want to choose frame rate so do I want this to be slow-mo or real-time for this show we're gonna go real time we're gonna go

24 frames per second after that shutter speed 50 are always gonna double whatever our frame rate says easy and like my brother I like a nice shallow depth of field this lens only goes to F so we're gonna go and just like my brother I like to keep the ISO as low as possible because the higher you boost your ISO the worse your image is gonna be the more noise is gonna be there we're outside there's lots of light I'm gonna keep it nice and low and then we're good to go let's see how it looks all right it's time to one-wheel back to the office one thing i kind of forgot to mention was white balance white

balance with video again because we're not shooting raw it's really important to get it so if you're filming in daylight like this use the daylight setting if you're filming on a cloudy day use the cloudy or for filming tungsten light indoors use the tungsten setting or or use auto if you want but in photos it doesn't matter raw raw is the best I wish we could shoot raw video all day long but that would be a little bit counterproductive because the file sizes would be massive alright anyways uh we're gonna continue one wheeling and enjoying this day see you guys you you
