We had a Producer and Director come in today to talk to us about how to operate a Camera, for the tutorial he used a Canon 5D. He taught us how to use functions such as the ISO and Aperture, as well as showing us simpler things, such as how to use the focus and zoom on a lense manually. Aside from teaching us about the camera’s he also showed us some of his work in the Film and TV industry, and explained how they captured some shots in the ads they made as well as how they came up with ideas and followed them through to production.
I used what I learned in this lesson quite recently, when taking some test film for my FMP. I was using a Canon camera so the lesson proved helpful in teaching me how they worked.
