This 2-day class is ideal for anyone interested in working with the powerful and accesible DSLR/DSLM to capture high quality video.

Since the late 2000s, the DSLR/DSLM has become widely adopted by filmmakers and video professionals who are looking to create high quality cinematic visuals without feature-film budgets. In this workshop we will cover all of the basic functionality of this powerful tool. There will be lessons on choosing camera settings for the desired look of video using ISO, aperture, color temperature, shutter speed, frame rate, and lens selection. We will discuss the basics of filmmaking language and visual storytelling, and practice methods for capturing cinematic visuals in various shooting scenarios. We will take time to discuss various cameras and peripherals on the market, and the instructor will make suggestions for anyone who is looking to make a gear purchase. Students will leave the workshop equipped with the fundamental skills to work proficiently with DSLR and Mirrorless cameras in the field.

For the Online iteration of this course, Students must have their own DSLR or Mirrorless camera at home.
