ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed, etc… these terms and settings used to confuse me when I was first using my camera too.

If your camera and its settings overwhelm you, this course will teach you how and why Manual Mode is a game-changer for recording videos. In this course I’m going to break everything down so you feel empowered and know exactly how to shoot videos just like the pros you watch each day.

No one wants to read the camera manual.

Today's cameras are incredibly powerful but can also overwhelm or confuse you when you're just diving in. And honestly, who has time to read the manual?

I will save you time, simplify what you need to know, and help you start filming in manual mode.

This course is for the beginner. If you just bought your camera and need to know how to use it fast let me help you out.

If you've had a DSLR or mirrorless camera sitting in your office and haven't figured out how to use it yet, I made this for you.

In just over an hour you will learn how to take full control and use your camera in manual modes.

By the end of the course you will know all about camera functions (like aperture, ISO, shutter speed, frame rate, white balance, etc.), exposure fundamentals, framing basics, resolutions, how to always be in focus, and basic audio recording.

My goal is for you to feel comfortable and confident with your camera in hand and always know the right settings to use to get a great looking image.


This course is for you if you've ever thought to yourself...

  • Why doesn't my video look the way I want it to?
  • What camera setting should I use right now?
  • How do I get that blurry background?
  • Why is there a hiss sound in my videos?
  • Why does the color in my video look so bad?

Over the years he has helped thousands of people make better videos. He knows not everyone can afford to hire a professional to show up & film great videos for them, so he started teaching people how to do it on their own.

"I was having such a hard time getting a blurry background. I wanted it so bad! And Caleb taught me it's all about the lens, so I went and bought a 50mm."
