Hi Mustapha, Yes, you can. There is no prior experience required with DSLR cameras. The class should assist you in the fundamentals of shooting videos that should help you shoot better video in general.

The class was great and Chad, the teacher, was awesome. Booking through CourseHorse -- not so good. The CourseHorse online booking system messed up the dates, which caused some slight heart palpitations. Seems to be a gremlin on their site, which they need to look into.

Great intro course! I knew nothing about my camera. Now I feel like I have a good understanding. Be sure to bring your laptop because you’ll need to take a lot of notes quickly. Only thing is that I wish is that the classes were broken up into once a week, as opposed to back to back.
