ive been gripping on a hgtv show for the past several months and they decided to start shooting two cameras. because of their budget, they chose me to shoot the b-camera footage as i have less experience than most of the seasoned camera operators in town.
the series producer has reported back to me that she is somewhat unhappy with my footage. some things are out of focus, some things are not the same exposure or color as a-camera.
i'm looking for some ideas/tips for beginners who are shooting in fast-paced environments. i realize a lot of this comes with experience and breaking in your muscle memory, but i'm hoping there's a few people who came up with a series of steps (maybe with an acronym) they would take when they picked up the camera. any specific tips for working a two-camera shoot would be specifically healthy.
we're using the sony pdw530 xdcam if that helps.
thanks in advance!
