Ten Tips to Produce More Professional Video Interviews

The personal interview is perhaps the most powerful tool for video storytelling both online and off. Here are some basic technical production tips for producing more effective and watchable video interviews.

Permission for people pictures - model release

EESC provides a form for you to use to get permission from subjects of your photos.

Be careful when using photos from the Web

Web-published photos are copyrighted just as if they were published in a book. If you plan to use a photo from the Web in a printed piece, be sure it is at least 300 ppi.

Preparing graphics for publishing with EESC

Tips for selecting and providing digital images for an EESC publication.

Obtaining copyright permissions for publishing with EESC

If you want to use text, photos, illustrations, tables, charts, or graphs from another publication or Web site, note that most material is copyrighted and using it without permission is illegal. Therefore, EESC requires that you submit written documentation (email is acceptable) that you have obtained permission to reproduce anything from another source.

Make photos last longer with careful storage

Use a camera long enough, and eventually slides, prints, and negatives start piling up all over your office. If your photo file consists of the back half of a dusty file drawer, consider upgrading your storage system.

Take better pictures of plants

Plants make interesting pictures. The colors, textures, shapes, and form of plants present all kinds of possibilities to the eye of the photographer.

Carry a photography "grab bag"

Not all camera gear has to be expensive or high tech. Sometimes something as simple as a clothespin can make all the difference in what you capture with your camera.

Add value to your photos

You’ve heard it said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But often in our business of education and information, it’s a few words that add value to a good picture.

Choose the right software for your digital darkroom

An important decision for every digital photographer, besides selecting a camera, is deciding what software to use in the digital darkroom.
