A few months ago I picked up a Canon t3i for video. I'd never used a DSLR before so it's been an eye-opening experience to say the least. I've learned a lot, but I've often found that when I'm in the field trying to shoot video I'll forget or neglect a rule or basic principle and ruin an entire days worth of filming. With that in mind, I'm trying to compile a 3-ring binder with useful information about DSLRs and video work in general that I can carry in my camera bag and reference when I'm unsure of something.
I've been scouring the web for useful tips and charts. There's plenty of stuff out there, and plenty of things I've learned, but I'm having a tough time concisely locating it all.
So I ask you guys: Are there any indispensable tips you could share? Or websites you frequent with useful information, pointed information? Lastly--has anyone done this before and would be willing to share their findings (figured I'd ask, ha!)?
To get an idea what information I'm compiling, here's my table of contents thus far:
(1.0) General Field
1.0 useful DSLR Quotes
1.2 Rule of Thirds
1.3 Depth of Field Chart
2.1 3-point lighting
2.2 white balance
(3.0) Post Production
3.1 skin tones
Lastly, I'm compiling this in Open Office and it's a bit clunky (especially because I'm copy + pasting pictures in which sometimes screws up the text already there) so if anyone has a suggestion for a better program to create something like this in let me know.
