I have been receiving a lot of emails from people asking where to start with learning DSLR video. This guide is my answer to those interested in getting started. This is also the process that got me started.
Before you fully commit to shooting video with DSLRs, you should ask yourself why. Is it because you want more manual control, Lens selection, or because DSLR are hot? If you answer with the latter you are in for a painful, disappointing reality. While DSLRs seem to be the bee’s knees, you will quickly find them to demand a whole other level of discipline you aren't ready, or want to engage in.
But if you are interested in more manual control and options to refine your footage, have a learners attitude, and are willing to work with the cons of shooting DSLR, your ready to jump in.
The first class/introduction include choosing a DSLR, learn the camera, learn about Cinematography,Figure out what you NEED, Practice Practice Practice,Ask for Critiquing and Learn more...
But if ...

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I am also currently attending a top 10 computer science Masters program at Georgia Tech specializing in machine learning/artificial intelligence to fill in the gaps in my knowledge.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Gerardo definitely knows a lot about Microsoft Excel. He taught me how to use pivot tables, create histograms, produce graphs of data, and he also helped me learn a few keyboard short-cuts to do my work more efficiently. Gerardo is a patient and effective tutor and I highly recommend him!

Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!
Henry
Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.

I wrote my first C program on MS-DOS 6.0, do you remember DOS? Or perhaps you never even heard of DOS. Let's just say I've been a C programmer for a really long time. I used to tutor people in CS 1 in college, their intro to C programming class. Whether you use C in Windows or Linux, I got you covered. I did systems programming in both Win32 and Linux. C itself is actually is very small language, it is just a very minimal abstraction on top of assembly language. So in many ways it is still semantically similar to assembly language. This is probably why many people consider C is a difficult language. Not because it is still to learn, but rather difficult to use. It's like chess, knowing the rules doesn't make you a master chess player.
Now I don't pretend to know every little obscure C trick there is and write the most indecipherable code, which by the way you should never do that. Writing unreadable code is a very bad thing for everyone. The reason people created high ...

About Luther

I'm a laid back kind of guy, and I'm passionate about the subjects that I teach. I've been tutoring since 2011 in college and grad school, so I do have quite a bit of tutoring and teaching experience. Perhaps more important than knowledge and passion is the ability to break down a subject so
