Class meets ~10am-5pm ET
This course is designed for students who already have a basic proficiency in shooting with DSLRs and/or mirrorless cameras, and are ready to delve deeper into the possibilities these tools provide them. We’ll assume you’re comfortable with exposure, shutter speed, aperture, Depth of Field, ISO, White balance, resolution and frame rates, and we will move into discussing more advanced technical concepts like picture profiles, color space, latitude and dynamic range.
An emphasis will be placed throughout the course, on aesthetics; composition, framing, motivated camera movement, and the necessity for intentional lens choice. We will also explore visual storytelling. Students will have the opportunity to shoot short exercises, while exploring perspective, subjectivity, and the best approaches for acquiring the coverage needed with the final edit in mind.
We will touch on gear options, including various handheld camera rigs and stabilizers, and externally recorded audio, and discuss the dynamics of working with these additional elements.
On Sunday at the end of class there will be opportunity to discuss gear; what cameras, lenses, rigs, audio gear, and lights might be most beneficial for students thinking about making their next purchase.
This course is a follow-up to “2-Day DSLR & Mirrorless Video”, which is a recommended pre-requisite.
NOTE: For the online iteration of this course, students will need to have their own DSLR or Mirrorless Camera with them at home.
Potential Faculty: Sam Brosnan, Tom Ryan, David Martinez
