Module #1 – Understanding Cameras
We’re stating with an intense but also important module. Here I explain to you every single camera spec in detail, that affects video. So alone after watching this module, you will be able to make better decisions regarding the settings of your camera and what camera to buy.
Module #2 – Use Cases
Depending on the style of video you want to shoot and the environment, the specs from the first module affect your video footage more or less. So in this module, we’re talking about different scenarios and which specs are most important in which case.
Module #3 – Camera Recommendations
If you’re still in the process of choosing a camera, this module will help you with making a final decision. It can actually save you money on your next camera purchase.
Module #4 – Lenses, Crop Factors & Adapters
Something that’s often overlooked when buying a camera is the lenses! That’s a big mistake as the choice of lenses is oftentimes more important as the camera itself. So in this module, I teach everything that has to do with your lens. So you understand what’s going on before light hits your sensor.
Module #5 – Pre-Shoot Settings
After a lot of theory we’re getting more practical in this module. We’re now using everything we learned in previous modules to set up your camera perfectly for the shoot.
Module #6 – Camera Usage During the Shoot
Just setting your camera up once before the shoot, unfortunately, doesn’t give us perfect results. To really maximize the quality of your footage, you have to make constant adjustments while shooting. In this module, you’ll learn exactly how to use your camera and make necessary adjustments when the scene changes.
Module #7 – Perfect Lighting
One aspect of videography that is actually more important than the camera itself is good light. If you can control the light that hits the sensor of the camera, the camera itself becomes nearly irrelevant. So in this module you will learn how to set up lights and what to do if you have no control about it.
Module #8 – Composition & Camera Movement
Composition & Camera Movement oftentimes go along with each other. The composition of each shot is important to lead the attention of the viewer. Camera movement makes the shot more interesting to watch and can show different angles of a scene. In this module I teach you the most important aspects of composition and camera movement.
Module #9 – Microphones
Even more important than the visual part of the video can oftentimes be the audio. Getting a good microphone is therefore often essential. In this part of the course, I teach you about the different types of microphones and when to use them. I also give you some general tips to improve your audio.
Module #10 – Bringing it All Together
In this module I give you a reminder of everything you learned and how to use all of this to produce the best quality video possible with your camera.
