By Aaron Chowdhury, Chattanooga, Tenn., — Students interested in outdoor videography can attend a free workshop at Chattanooga Outdoors.
The outdoor video classes make up a three-part workshop where students can learn about composing a shot, the essentials of editing, as well as sharing videos on the Internet.
“The workshops are geared towards getting people outdoors,” said Ruth Thompson, the events and marketing coordinator for Outdoor Chattanooga.
“We want anyone regardless of experience level to be able to get something from the workshops.”
The classes are designed for beginners with no experience. “If you have a smartphone, and you want to shoot video outdoors then this workshop is for you,” Thompson said.
“I would love to learn how to videotape because I just got a new phone,” freshman Ricarnicea Johnson from Jackson, Tenn. said. “I do a lot of outdoor activities. It would be a great opportunity to learn more.”
Local professional videographers Louis Lee, Drew Renner, Corey Wentz and Philip Luckey will teach the outdoor video workshops.
The first class, “Getting the Shot,” begins Feb. 5 at 6 p.m. at 200 River St. in downtown Chattanooga. The other workshops, “Editing Essentials,” and “Finishing and Sharing” begin at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 12 and 19.
The winter workshops are open to the public for all ages, and no special equipment or registration is necessary.
