Rick traveled from Belize with his new 5D to really get trained so he could start shooting commercials for the TV station for which he works. Here are his comments of his boot camp experience:
"I basically wanted to know how the camera works in and out. I had no idea how to operate one before the boot camp, and the first day was great because I learned so many things about the camera. The 2nd day was using the camera for real scenes, how to shoot scenes. So I was like, OK, I know step 1, step 2, step 3; and achieving that look, the warm look I was looking for. The ISO, how much to use, F-stops, focus; all these things just came easy. The bar scene was interesting because of the lighting, the depth of the shot that we did.
"Definitely I would recommend the boot camp for anybody who's interested in knowing about the Canon DSLR camera, whether it's the 7D, 5D, Mark III or Mark II. Because it makes you appreciate the camera more, and how well it does, and the things you can do with it.
"And the instructors here are very helpful, knowledgeable, professional and they really help a lot in achieving that goal."
