The Interactive Photography Flow Chart Every Beginning Filmmaker Should Have

Where to Start Chart
We've all been there: a newbie with a camera, a subject, but no clue of what to do. This chart should help you get started.  

Mark Wallace's "Where to Start Chart" is not your average educational infographic. It's interactive. Each bubble in the chart contains a link to one of Mark's helpful video tutorials that goes into the subject matter more in-depth. So, for example, if you wanted to learn more about depth of field, all you would have to do is click the "DOF" bubble on the chart, and voilà, the corresponding video will open in your browser.

This video should provide a good introduction to the chart for you.

The "Where to Start Chart" is free for everyone, so just click here to get your hands on it. It also gets updated regularly, so be sure to check back from time to time to make sure that yours is the most up to date version.

I tried watching the video, but sadly was unable to finish it due to the excessive mentioning of the sponsor. To me it was so annoying that I closed the video. Not a really helpful comment...I know. Just wanted to express how I felt towards this video :P

I was too busy watching the surf spotter's nearly getting into a friendly fight in the background over how the waves break to hear any of this infomercial. I really want to know more about their background story. Is there any way the creators could relay the potentially epic tale of these boisterous background characters (pictured up until 2:27)? I think they have a real contribution to make to your audience, as opposed to the sycophantic repetitively sponsor naming shill, er Hero, of this infomercial. Oh, by the way - the infographic appears quite useful on it's own without all of the padded commercial back-links to the sponsor's questionable infomercial library website. "Generic photography information is generically collected into a generic graphic flowchart, then used as a deadly infomercial weapon" - would possibly have been a better headline for this post. [I otherwise really enjoy the information I receive through No Film School - keep up the great work!]
