It’s very easy to begin using the video feature of your DSLR camera, but understanding these three features while using manual controls is a must to produce quality footage.

    Wow, thanks for the chance to win! I have two classes on my wishlist, Through the Looking Glass and The Inspired Child! What I really want is to be able to find and recognize what is MY style, and both classes address that. Thanks again!
