INTERNSHIP: Quidditch at the College of Charleston (VIDEO)

Early in November, I shot a video of the College of Charleston’s quidditch team as it practiced on campus.  I used a Vixia HG21 camcorder with a shotgun mic.  Its small size made it virtually impossible to handhold without creating a very shaky image.  I still wanted mobility, however, so I opted for a monopod (the interviews used a tripod).  There were two obstacles encountered shooting the video.  First, there was a fountain on one end of the field which would ruin the audio.  This forced me to do much of my shooting on the other side.  Second, even though the practice started at 6:30 and lasted an hour, I had much less time to record video because I could barely shoot anything usable after the sun set.  I was able to brighten some of the video in post by boosting the gamma values but only to a certain extent.
