Live Musician Shoot with Georgia Fields

Last week we had the wonderful opportunity to shoot a live musician in a studio. We all really appreciated the time Gerogia took to perform for us. I found the exercise very productive. We were placed into small groups and each group set a camera around the stage following the 180 degree rule. It was great practice working with a team and in terms of thinking about framing and camera position. Furthermore, we had to keep in mind coverage, making sure we always had a couple of cameras on a static shot of Georgia for editing continuity. Jenny, Tim and I filmed some great looking shots. Most of all it was just good to get behind a camera and some some experience. Before even shooting we had to think carefully about lighting the scene so it would be lit well and aestetically pleasing from each camera’s angle.  Furthermore we thought about how the stage should look and where Georgia should be positioned etc.
