DVD in the Making: Shooting HD Videos with the Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D

Juan Pons and I just wrapped up day one of our shoot for our upcoming DVD: Canon DSLR Video Master Class. We'll be sharing our best tips, tricks and techniques for shooting HD videos with the Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D.

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at our lighting set up for the intro segment: The Westcott Spider TD5 light kit positioned for shadowless lighting.

Westcott's Dave Piazza is coming here to Croton with more cool lighting accessories on Thursday to shoot a segment on lighting for video - indoors and out.

Quick tip on lighting: The larger the light, the softer the light; the closer the light, the softer the light.
