Digital Cinematography presents the big picture of lighting and camera work in the context of a project or set. Experiment with composition to decide which framing and depth of field works best for the style, scene, and genre you wish to shoot. Learn additional advanced manual image control techniques on the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro, and practice key shooting exercises using both natural and artificial light to harness your cinematic eye.
