You have now completed a journey through shooting video with a DSLR.…Shooting video can be a lot of fun.…It's something highly different than still photography.…Now you can capture movement and sound and put it all together in stories about…the world all around you.…I know that I've talked about some things that are things that you're not used…to doing all the time.…It will take a little time and effort to master all of these techniques.…But think about it. When you first started shooting still photos, you didn't…master all that in a short time either.…
Have fun while you're shooting.…Enjoy the experience of learning this new medium.…You may find it challenging at first to go back and forth between shooting video…and shooting still photos.…You may decide to do only one or the other at a time. That's okay.…You'll find that dealing with video and shooting both video and stills becomes…easier the more that you do it. So just do it.…And as you shoot, you might want to give yourself some assignments.…
