The technique of today’s wedding videography is multicamera production. At its most rudimentary level, one camera will be operated by a videographer as a second unmanned camcorder is set up on a tripod, taping the event.
With the other, most of the time a camcorder does the shooting, for the reception. At its most sophisticated, a multicamera setup works in much the same way a community production could be configured, with cameras attached to some switcher. A director is in continuous contact with each of the three, four or more camera operators through headsets, coordinating their shots while inputting tape while shifting live between cameras which can be added in place.
Each of the wedding videographers interviewed were certain that amateurs are not overrunning their businesses in any substantial manner, although there were many examples of”newbies” who made valiant efforts but found out — frequently too late — that pro-level videography is not as simple as it looks.
Even though editing software and equipment costs has attracted video-making to the mainstream, expertise and talent, in addition to hard work and advertisements continue to be infrequent qualities that make professional wedding videographers like wedding videographer Gold Coast, a valuable resource for the dollar wedding business.
