Unknowingly, photographers are already trained in many of the key skills behind great cinematography—not least the arts of lighting and composition. Now, with the advent of high-definition video recording capabilities, the cameras have finally caught up.

The Moviemaking With Your Camera Field Guide shows photographers how they can build on what they already know to create truly spectacular movies with their camera in whatever genre they choose. It introduces everything from the language of film and basic equipment you will need, to the art of post-production and publishing your new work.
