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 ...

Absolutely Amazing!!! She was very helpful and provided great information and knowledge. If she did not know the answer directly, she would provide resources and assistance that helped during the session to resolve the question and resources for future questions. I would definitely recommend her and also use her services again.

Learning Microsoft Windows with me is easy and fun. I taught myself how to use Windows and understand how to teach it in a way that will actually help you learn. If you need help in a specific area of Windows or want to learn how to protect Windows from Viruses and Malware. Best thing with me is you do not need multiple lessons to finally start learning, more lessons the better of course, but my promise is after any lesson you will have learned something to take with you.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!

"Donna was so patient with me. She gave me many ideas and homework to help make my website successful. She even spent outside time looking at my website and comparing it to my competitors to decide what was needed before she met with me as she had comprised a list of details that I needed to work on. I loved the attention she gave me even with my lack of knowledge.

I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with SEO. Thank you Donna and I can't wait for another lesson."

"Cheryl provided a great learning experience about WordPress. I was not familiar with the program at all until I went to a workshop she presented at. Cheryl did not present the information in terms that were overly technical, making it easy to understand. Cheryl is definitely well versed in this topic and was very helpful in answering questions after the workshop. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to learn more about WordPress"

"I have had the pleasure of taking several classes from Gil; Illustrator, Advanced Photoshop, 3D Modeling to name a few. As an older student in classrooms full of younger students, I can certainly recommend Gil's ability to teach any age group. He has the patience to walk students through techniques and procedures despite any lack of skill. At the same time, he is quick to challenge those students who skillfully grasp concepts and are ready to move on. The atmosphere he provides is warm and encouraging. There are so many techniques I am continue to use thanks to Gil's instruction!"
