Part One – Videography Camera Basics

So you have a camera and you’re ready to shoot video! Now what? This session will help those who are wanting to shoot video with a DSLR or Mirrorless camera for the first time. We will introduce beginner concepts and techniques and discuss a few higher level concepts without intimidating first time cinematographers. Our approach to shooting will be simple without getting too caught up on the technical side. We will have an opportunity to answer some higher level questions. We want you to leave this class a better cinematographer than you came in.

Part Two – Lighting Basics for Video Work

Your camera responds to light. It needs light to create images and movies that you desire. In the class will dig into some basic lighting techniques for cinematography, some tools and tips to get your videos looking better right away. Our approach to lighting will be simple without getting too caught up on the technical side.

Part Three – Combining Camera and Lighting work to Tell a Story

Your camera and lighting basics are dialed in. So now what do we do? This class will teach you how to take those basics skills and create moods, tones, and looks to craft the story you are telling. Whether it be a 30 second commercial, branding video or your first short film, camera and lighting techniques go hand in hand with the story you are trying to tell. This is how you take those basic skills and combine them to grow your talents to the next level.

We'd love to hear from you.
