Shooting and filming patterns


It is quite obvious that although there is a mega-diversity of photos, they can be somehow grouped into categories. For example, in the field of naturalistic photography we have: 1. landscapes, 2. aerial photography, 3. plant macros, 4. insect / invertebrate macros, 5. ultra-macro through binocular microscopy with details of insects, seeds , leaves, etc., 6. birds in flight, 7. birds on substrate / soil / sand / branches, 8. human portraits, 9. large mammals in the wild, 10. micro-mammals, 11. underwater photography, 12. reptiles and amphibians , 13. people in landscapes / adventure / ecotourism, 14. Photography in the area of ​​microscopy (including those with electron microscopy)… and the list can be longer, if you feel like detailing. It probably seems pretty clear that you have no chance of performing in all this; and maybe in none of them. If you look at the level of performance of all these sub-domains of naturalistic photography on a global level, you realize that to do something that attracts attention, you need a quasi-pathological dedication and involvement for life.


In the field of filming, the situation is even more complicated (if you want to do something more sophisticated). Maybe start with an interview. Or with some time-lapse, in areas suitable for that. Or telephoto or macro filming, which is similar to shooting session. And then the movement of the camera; whether it is placed on a vehicle moving at ground level, on water or in the air, or in human hands, or in small cameras mounted on a helmet, submerged in water, mounted on animals, etc.… The filmed material has for example 30 still images / second as a series of photos, plus a soundtrack. If you do a simple calculation, that means 1,800 photos per minute, or 108,000 photos per hour of footage. Let's say you're familiar with high-resolution photos (and file sizes)… and do the multiplication… about what it would be like to be filmed at the same level; about what transfer rate would be needed, about what storage spaces and about what processing equipment / software? In addition to image processing as in photography (contrast, colors, etc.), here is also added an increase or decrease in playback speed, editing cuts to give a more agile or calmer rhythm, musical, verbal effects, which are combined with the image … So you are in a radically different realm from photography.
