Tips for Video Recording

(15 minutes) ADRIENNE / Eileen 

 

General Tips - Shooting Tips

1. Keep it steady

2. Pan slowly.

3. Use digital zoom sparingly; physically moving is better.

4. Use a tripod when available.

5. Microphone is on the camera, stay close to main sound source.

6. Be conscious of background noise.

7. Keep sunlight at the shooter's back; avoid backlight.

8. Use more than one artificial light source.

 

Framing Shots

          Excellent Summary of Framing Shots 

1. Wide angle shots show everything and nothing in particular.

2. Medium and close up lose the background but reveal emotion. 

3. Low angle is looking up at subject like a "hero shot." 

4. High angle is looking down and makes subject look small. 

5. Observe the rule of thirds. 

6. Lead action and movement with open space.

 


Activity - Video Interviewing Techniques
