305 W 700 S
Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Tuition covers all four Wednesday evening courses.  These classes are taught by pictureline photo experts and are offered through the University of Utah Continuing Education & Community Engagement.



Join Jens Nielsen and Berkley Pack at pictureline to learn the fundamentals of shooting a professional video with your DSLR camera in a four week class. We will discuss topics such as choosing the best hardware, frame rates, camera limitations, composition, sound techniques, lighting, editing, and telling a story. This course is designed for anyone who is interested in utilizing the video features on their digital camera. 

A DSLR with video capability is required for this class. 

We will be covering four main topics:

  • How to Shoot the video using Digital SLR cameras
  • Lighting
  • Sound
  • Post Production

Beginning on the ground level of DSLR cameras, we will encourage an understanding of aperture, shutter speed, ISO and frame-rate settings. 

We will also guide participants through the planning process for a video shoot. Understanding storyboarding, proper angles, ideal lens field of view, and other technical aspects is imperative to the flow of filmmaking.

“The look,” or emotional ambiance of the scene is another important step of successful filmmaking. We will help you understand the most influential factors that contribute to the look of your videos.

Quality and control in audio components requires dedicated tools and planning. We will discuss proper audio hardware, and how to seamlessly correlate the audio and video aspects of your film.  

Light post production editing will be done in Adobe Premiere Pro. We will be talking about some of the basic knowledge needed for Premiere Pro. We will wrap up the class with Q&A at the end of every session.
