I just purchased the book and I’m several chapters in. I like your no-nonsense approach to teaching and I think this book will help me get off to a great start. Are there any more tech style books that you could recommend for novices who want to dive into video production? I’m thinking of starting off with a Sony a7iii. Your recommendation would be appreciated.
Thanks, Don. Glad the book is working for you so far. Most technical books on video, especially cameras and software, get stale fast. Everything I know about camera buying is here: What video camera should I buy? 5 Questions to Ask
