Introducing the core ideas behind how video cameras capture moving images, you’ll learn how to organize and run single and multi-camera video productions, which lenses to use, and how best to compose your images.
We’ll show you how to use simple tools and techniques to make your lighting and location work together, how to make the most of natural light and augment it with artificial lighting, and how to reveal or obscure objects and subjects in your scene.
