Camera Theory: Class ANOTE: This in person workshop REQUIRES all participants to wear a mask in order to attend. Please DO NOT register if you are unable to wear a mask.
Camera Theory provides a foundation for working with all types of cameras. Whether you are interested in shooting film, video or digital cinema, learn the basics of camera operation that will allow you to approach any camera with confidence. Topics include: camera components, lenses, exposure, f-stops, aperture, light metering, depth of field, aspect ratio and more.
Camera Theory is a foundational workshop and is necessary as a prerequisite for many of our camera based and cinematography focused workshops. This workshop is recommended as a companion to Directing Dramatic Film, Cinematography Fundamentals, Lighting Fundamentals, Creative Lighting and all our camera workshops.
Please note that a workshop does not substitute the need for LIFT members to perform a proficiency test in order to rent particular LIFT equipment and/or facilities from our Technical Department. This includes our Sony F3 Camera Package.
