This is a camera slightly similar to the one we will be using in shooting our Thriller pieces.
Throughout our lesson, we were taught all the basics of camera work. We had previously learned about different shots before the start of this coursework, but this lesson was about using the actual camera and its functions. We learned how to operate a majority of its switches to do with zoom and autofocus, and also manual focus. We touched briefly on lighting, and obviously camera safety, as the cameras are very expensive.
I had learned about these things before in GCSE media, and also when working for my Bronze Arts Award in film making.
