I've launched a new Facebook group for those interested in DSLR video.
The page serves two purposes.
1. I'll share what we're learning about DSLR Video.
2. I'll let you know things about the new book and DVD I'm developing.
I hope you can stop by and join us.
We've got a ton of video clips posted to give you ideas.
We've also opened a forum, so please post a question or comment.
