Join Nikon School lecturer and Videographer Yuhki Murayama for a 3-part online course getting started in Videography.

About this event

Nikon School lecturer Yuhki Murayama will be running a 3-part online course where you will learn how to get started in videography whilst becoming more familiar with your Nikon Z camera.

Split across 3 consecutive weeks, come away from each weekly session with an array of new knowledge about your Z Series camera and getting started in Videography.

In the first two sessions you will learn about the basic button layouts as well as a deeper intro into each of the video settings that your Z series is capable of. Finally, we'll bring everything together in the 3rd and final online session and teach you how to export your videos in Final Cut Pro to explore basic the video editing skills.

This course will run through some key tips/steps in setting up your new or existing Z camera system so you’re able to walk away with some new-found skills to use and to get the most out of it. Plus, there will also be some time to ask any questions you might have too.

Please note that this is a three part course, running over three dates on Wednesday 15th, Wednesday 22nd and Wednesday 29th June.

Purchasing a ticket means that you are enrolling in all of the 3 modules across the 3 listed dates above.

Recommended for: for the Beginner wanting to get started in Videography using your Nikon Z Series
