I got to run camera for the first time today. The media department didn’t really teach me to swim–they just threw me into the pool!
And it was awesome!
I observed Sunday morning and evening. Someone showed me the basics of how to run the camera before the evening service, but that was it.
Today the supervisor walked me through step by step–through my headphones–how to set up the different kinds of shots.
What was strange was to look up at the big screens and see that my shot could be seen by everyone…
Plus, I did a lot of zoom shots (kind of like panoramic action shots) which was seen by everyone on watching online.
I look forward to learning more and more about running camera because it’s a valuable skill that helps ministries get the gospel message spread around the world.
Remember what I told you a few days ago?
I’m not against the use of technology in the church.
Just go to church and get involved yourself!
Then listen to podcasts and watch the sermons again on YouTube.
I listen to teachings all the time at work. And today I paid particular attention to the quality of the video and the kind of shots being used.
Kinda cool to think that one day a sermon that I helped record will be online for someone else to watch.
No one will know it was me who helped, but I’ll know. God will know, too, which is all that matters anyway.
