Video Shooting advicePosted: March 18, 2012
Being a novice at filming videos, I turned to the web to find some good instruction on how to shoot professional looking videos. I came across several articles about how to do this, but I found this particular article useful: 12 Tips for Shooting Better Video
This article was helpful for deciding how I want to position the subject of my shot in the the frame. It suggested to place the subject off-center to allow greater view of the background and to add interest. This is something I didn’t think of, but I know want to utilize. The article also included tips such as avoiding overuse of zoom and cautioning against too much backlighting. I hope this article can be useful for you as well when shooting your narrative videos!
