Adjusting the F-Stop, originally uploaded by Wordyeti.

…and on the third day here, we took the students into the practice TV studio next to the classroom, and taught them how to shoot chromakeys. They really responded to this part of the lesson – I guess it felt like “grown-up” work, because it involves professional lights, a backdrop and people sitting on the other side of a glass window yelling instructions at them.

The Sony camera I’m adjusting here was a great tool for them to practice with. Probably not the type of equipment that they are going to use back at the newspaper or web organization that they return to, but at least they get to have some hands-on experience with the stuff the real pros use.
