DSLR Video Making


Tuition available in either documentary or drama style production.

Line & Light can provide one to one training in DSLR Video production. Regardless of whether you’re filming a family event, making a DSLR Drama production or wanting to make videos for your workplace, we can tailor a one day or multiple session course to your individual skill level / experience and guide you through the following aspects of video production.

Typical training includes

  • Best equipment for YOUR production needs
  • Learning about frame rates, ISO, exposure, lens choice
  • Problems of rolling shutter, moiré, aliasing and more
  • Hand holding, tripod work, steadicam
  • Matte box, filters, integral screen/external monitor
  • White balance
  • Audio – onboard vs external sound & microphones
  • Developing a narrative
  • Editing – Final Cut Pro X basic use

Training may take place in Nottingham, or we may travel within the midlands to a location of your choice. There will be the opportunity to try kit as you learn new techniques with us and takeaway notes will be provided.

If you are completely new to DSLR and don’t know about camera controls for still photography, we recommend that you attend our Digital Photography Stages 1 & 2 courses prior to booking your 1:1 days.

“Fantastic guys. Very approachable and easy to learn from. I travelled from Northern Ireland due to the lack of courses back home, really glad I picked Line and Light to help me further my services in my chosen industry, I’d like to thank Martine and Paul for making me feel at home and making it a very enjoyable few days.”
