Whenever I see videos about product reviews or what not I often notice they have a medium shot of the person and the product in frame and they have a close up shot of the product in frame
my question is this, using just ONE camera (cuz i only have one) how do they cut between the medium and the close shots. I know i can zoom in between both shots, but i dont want to do that, and if i remove the zooms in post, there is nothing there where the person is talking. the only way i can think that this could be overcame (again with ONE camera) is have the person stop talking, zoom in and then resume his dialogue..
is there another way they do this? I am working on a cooking show and i need to have far and close cuts too and this is a major problem for me..
