Basic technical aspects of camera operation, sound recording, and lighting principles are taught through demonstration and hands-on practical exercises using the Canon Rebel T4i high definition camera and its interchangeable lenses. Learn how to use manual settings to help you get the best shot. Understand exposure, gain, shutter speed, and white balance. Using the Zoom H4n, audio recording procedure and considerations will be introduced. The principals of three-point lighting will also be covered and practiced.

This workshop uses equipment you can rent from VIVO, so it’s a great primer to get you started on your videos! It also benefits participants interested in VIVO’s more intermediary video-making workshops.

Refunds: Class sizes are small, and our instructors need to be paid–if you can’t make a class that you’ve signed up for, we need time to alert wait-listed participants. VIVO presently asks that withdrawals from workshops be requested by emailing VIVO Education at least 12 days prior to the workshop date, if you would like to receive a refund minus a $5 administration fee. Thanks!
