Hunt’s Photo, Providence

Recommended prerequisite: Prior knowledge of photography and ownership of a camera with interchangeable lenses and video functionality.

Instructor: Video Specialist Nick Froment

Class Size: Up to 10 attendees

Course Description
Photographers everywhere love that digital cameras have the capability of creating “videos”. But what important settings are there? How can I take full advantage of my camera that has 4K 60fps, and what am I even saying when I say those words??? I just want to make a great video- what do I need to know?!

Well, fret no more! Video for Photographers is geared for…primarily photographers that want to use their camera for occasional videos! This is the class that is going to give you insight into the basic settings and why to set them; how to take full advantage of the best qualities of your camera, and leaves a lot of the higher-end technical stuff out of the picture.

In this jam-packed course, we’ll cover basic camera settings (some of which you’re used to from still photography); basic menu settings such as frame rates, resolution, and codecs; framing, composition, and cinematography basics. The goal of this course is to send you on your way much more confident about how to set up your next video.

A clear difference: This class is not necessarily geared toward someone that is looking to branch into filmmaking (though it couldn’t hurt). This class is geared towards the photographer that wants to make casual videos. If you are a still photographer looking to branch into video to enhance your portfolio, our Intro to Filmmaking class is a more advanced and challenging class that will dig deeper into many of these concepts. But hey, you can always take both classes!
