    How fast is your prime? Does your lens breathe a lot? Have you ever needed someone to pull focus? If you're using a camera that has removable lenses you'll need to learn this language and understand how lenses work. In this workshop we'll explore the differences between zooms and primes, still photo lenses and manual cinema lenses, speciality lenses and how to pick the right ones for your project. The intensive, continuing education workshop will be led by Patrick Reis whose experience spans over 10 years working in commercials and TV, with clients including ESPN, Fox Sports, Nickelodeon.
