Today I cam across two free eBooks for the DSLR filmmaker.
The first one comes from the German media designer Denny Moritz. For his final bachelor report he wrote a book about DSLR filming, from a professional and passionate view. DSLR – Beyond The Still includes a buyers guide, technical information, example pre- and post-productions workflows and some handy DIY tips. The PDF of the book is available for free (donations are of course welcome!) but you can also purchase printed versions.
The DSLR Cinematography Guide is a book from the NoFilmSchool, a site for DIY filmmakers and independent creatives. The site focuses on tools and technology relevant to filmmakers, writers, directors, editors, producers, cinematographers, bloggers, designers, and entrepreneurs. The PDF book is updated and expanded from the online version of the guide, which includes technical and practical information.
