DSLR moviemaking shares more in common with fundamental filmmaking than it does with traditional photography.

Part II begins by covering basic shot structure before getting creative with varying angles. After that, it’s on to techniques like time-lapse, green screen, and basic and advanced lighting technique. Of course, none of that matters too much if the shot is not properly composed. I cover that too.

And then there’s audio capture, which makes the movie look better. You’ll see why.
