Your Journey Into The Realm Of Video
In This Course…
So many of us pick up a camera and learn to create these beautiful, magical photographs behind the lens, but then we wonder to ourselves… “What about video? Where should I start? What do I do with the footage? How do I edit it? How do I tell good, strong stories? How to I decide what to keep and what to toss? What gear do I need? Is my camera enough? Etc. etc. etc.”
Well, wonder no longer! This course will take you, a photographer, on a journey with Laura (another photographer) all the way through to unlock the world of video! Nicholas Froese, a videographer of 20+ years walks his wife, Laura, through this process.
This course isn’t your standard, “sit and listen to someone teach”. It’s more! It’s coming and pulling up a chair along side this couple as Laura asks 101 questions of Nicholas while she transforms from photographer to videographer while documenting their own family adventures.
We have a heavy emphasis on building story throughout. We don’t want to just teach you to smash a bunch of clips together and add music. We want to teach you to CREATE! And yes, we included the bloopers, too ;). We cover:
Setting up your DSLR or mirrorless camera for video
How to shoot a scene for story and have it flow seamlessly
The basics of editing and creating story
Delving deeper into editing and special effects
The art of clip selection; and
Audio, export hacks, etc.

“The from stills to motion course is fantastic! It has highlighted so many simple things that I hadn’t realized were crucial when making the switch from photography to video! I thought I knew my camera, but this course has taught me that it has so much more potential then I realized for creating video content! Laura and Nick explain everything in a way that is relatable and easy to digest. Like all of the courses I have taken by Laura, this one does not disappoint!” ~ S.G.
