Workshops

Intro to Travel Vlogging: During the tour of Italy we’ll take in the field opportunities to share with the group how to capture quality, authentic, and meaningful moments on camera for vlog type videos. Topics of discussion will include how to make sure you capture enough footage, filming practices to keep the process from interfering with the experience, tips for talking to the camera and communicating with your audience, and, most importantly, share how we capture moments that are authentic for memory’s sake. Whether you have a fancy DSLR or a camera phone, this basic and informal workshop will help you up your game. We’re sharing our process as we film Iceland vlogs in real time so you can watch the process exactly how we film our other travel vlogs! This is an informal workshop, perfect for asking questions and getting hands on experience.
