Thread: Shooting Good Video - tips from Jim Harring

  1. #11


    if you are using a smaller type of camcorder (i have the sony HC1 HD cam) and i hold the camcorder in my right hand and steady it with my left hand and gripping the lens hood, it makes for great steady shots, especially if you are walking or transtioning from a low down shot to a shot taken at head height.

    Personally I think the best tip I can give anyone is to invest in a good microphone. You will immediately see the difference in your results. Assuming you have decent video-editing software, the next most important thing is to learn the three-point lighting technique. Here are my top ten tips, in case they help (feedback appreciated).

    Very useful post, Marc, thanks! "Pan and zoom for a REASON" is a good one for me to remember
    The creative act lasts brief moment, a lightning instant just long enough for you to level what camera you have and trap the fleeting prey
