DSLR Video Vol 2: A Crash Course In Professional Cinematography, Camera Angles. 

Hi everyone! I've just finished my new course and I'm extremely pumped about it. But why?

When I was growing up and trying to learn filmmaking through studying cinematography books I found that it was almost impossible. Trying to understand concepts related to motion through still photographs in a book just didn't cut it. I sort of got the idea, but I couldn't really relate it to a clearly visualized concept. And I thought to myself "This book is amazing, why doesn't someone make a series of videos to help illustrate and explain the concepts in it?"

Fast forward almost 30 years later and I'm doing just that! The book I am referring to is Joseph Mascelli's The 5 C's of Cinematography.
