This course runs at the same time every week over 5 weeks.
In 2008 Canon introduced the 5D Mark II changing the landscape of photography with its added video component. Originally designed to be used by photojournalists reporting on the news, the video function presented photographers and filmmakers with new creative possibilities.
Today, DSLR short films have received Oscar nominations, with major films and TV shows using the DSLR's incredible low light capabilities. But, the process is not as simple as just pressing the record button.
This course is designed to provide participants with the basics of shooting and editing video. Over 5 weeks experienced photographer and videographer, Hugh Hamilton, will introduce participants to the video functions of a DSLR, its advantages and its limitations.
