Hi! I am Rob Sheppard. Welcome to Shooting Video with a DSLR. DSLR cameras are designed primarily for shooting still photographs, but recently many DSLRs have now include the capability of shooting HD video. In this course, I'll introduce you to equipment and shooting techniques that will allow you to transition from still photography to shooting video with a DSLR camera. I'll start by identifying the major differences between composing individual still photographs, and telling a story over time with video.
Next, I'll take a look at the ideal equipment for shooting video, including camera supports, lights, and even specific camera components. Finally, we'll go hands-on. As I shoot video of an event, I'll explore vital techniques for capturing the action with a DSLR, like choosing the right shutter speed and recording great audio. Well, anybody with a video-capable DSLR should benefit from this course, some knowledge of the foundations of still photography is ideal. As a photographer and a videographer, I'm really excited about the possibilities of shooting video with a DSLR.
