Pro audio training:
I recently attended a small intensive full day workshop on audio for use with my HDSLR cameras by the owner of audio visual specialist PinkNoise, John McCombie.
With only 6 in the group and other video pro’s from the Guardian it was an excellent opportunity to hear about and discuss new tech and setups with John who has over 20 years as a sound engineer on BBC wildlife and Dramas.
My audio kit has now been expanded and my head filled with new settings and new approaches to sound recording in different environments. Where possible, such as on the Crown Inn Pub shoot I prefer to use a professional sound recordist as with visual work there are many variables that you need to be prepared for and not having to think in ‘sound’ can be helpful.
