Schedule a day to do the shooting for your workshop. You could set aside a full day and try and film it all at once, or you could film it modularly, it’s up to you.
Here are some things to bear in mind when planning your shoot:
- Consider time saps
- For instance, a bread making workshop may require hours of waiting for dough to prove and when bread is baking in the oven. During these waiting periods, you can utilise your time by filming other steps so that you make the most of your shoot time.
- Estimate how long it will take to shoot each session
- Consider light levels outside (try not to overlap your shoot with sunset)
- Start by filming the session steps, then make time for workshop introduction, workshop summary, challenge (if applicable) and then the trailer
- Identify opportunities for promotional stills
- In addition to portrait and landscape session stills, your workshop will need one main landscape photo and one main portrait photo for display on the app
- You should also consider opportunities for general stills that can be used on social media and general promotional material
