Intro to Video for Photographers


HDSLRs changed the motion picture production world over night. Knowing where to start and how to get quality footage can be a challenge, but with the right foundation you'll be able to produce your own content with confidence.


This course covers the technical basics of working with HDSLRs for capturing motion content, as well as the benefits and limitations of the technology. 
The emphasis is to empower you to shoot with real world equipment that you may already own, while giving you the confidence to use more advanced equipment as you develop your skills. 
NB: The focus for this workshop is entirely on HDSLRs. Most demonstrations will use Canon equipment, but we'll also look at any cameras you may bring.
You do not need to bring your own camera, but it will help you if you do.
