of no other than passion. Lots of
folks start venturing on this field all out of passion. A lot of people has started off video making only as a
hobby. While many adhere to avoiding the limelight and
continue shooting videos as a hobby, a lot has taken it more seriously and has switched from being a hobbyist to becoming a pro
in video making. But it is quite hard not to fell in love with it more and aim
to become a pro in this form of art. From pure hobby to becoming a pro, this is
the common scenario among videographers.

Affordability– this is just one of the major dilemmas of those who would
like to start generating their own video. Cost is
an important consideration when planning to make a video.
Lots of people would consider the cost when planning to shoot a video. While there
are many expensive gadgets that can aid you in getting the best output,
especially with regard to
lighting, there are still other accessories and devices you can use that are
more budget-friendly. While many individuals are investing on
highly-priced gadgets, you can still look at some other accessories that are more
affordable. Don’t stress over the budget, there are
many affordable accessories available
to help you capture great photos and videos.

Rule # 1:.

Study! No matter how
expensive the gadget is, if you don’t know how to use it and
how you can turn lighting from your worst nightmare to your sweetest
best friend, then all your money would be junk into wasteland. Even if you have the most innovative model of
camera or video recorder, you have to have the
knowledge about what you are doing. It is the knowledge
and the skill of the videographer that matters the most so study very well.
Any lighting gadget, whether it is the most
pricey or the least
expensive, would need proper setting-up. In spite of
the price, gadgets need appropriate setting by the user.
Without appropriate setting by the user, gadgets even the most
expensive one, would not be of help. The initial concept you have to
know with is three-point lighting. You have
to be familiar with 3-point lighting. It is extremely important for video shooters to know the
3-point lighting. Moreover, you
would have to discover where to put your softboxes, light
stands and the other component of your lighting kit. Also, you
should learn where to put your accessory kits. Also, your accessories
should be positioned in the right area. Without appropriate
placement, you would not have the ability to maximize
the full capacity of your equipment. If not, you can not maximize
the use of your gadget. Or else, you would not be able to
make the most of the
features of your device.

Additionally,
there are various kinds of lighting and you have to know them by heart. You should
memorize by heart the different kinds of
lighting. It is crucial for you
to know the different type of lighting. There are wide
variations among LED, halogen and fluorescent
lighting and now is the right time for you to study how and when
they are used since it is very essential that you
know which kind of lighting to use in each and every video production. There’s a huge difference between LED,
fluorescent, halogens, etc and you must know them by heart as
early as now. The difference among the a variety of
kind of lights must be learned before
the actual shooting.

Three-Point Lighting.

Now, let’s concentrate on one of the most fundamental parts of improving the lighting conditions in your
video, and that is the three-point lighting. Now, it is about time for you to
learn about the three point lighting. Now, study how you can perfect
lighting conditions and learn about 3 point lighting. If you want to create quality video, then
it is time that you add dimensions, and you can do that by the means of
three-point lighting. This is very important to produce high quality videos. This is really vital to yield excellent quality
videos. Through this widely used technique, your
two-dimensional image will develop into three dimensions,
and this can be done by using shadows and lights
during video production. Turn everything into 3 dimensions through shadowing
and good lightning. Create 3D images by learning the art of shadowing and
lighting.

– Key Light: If you are going to cast
actors in a play, the key light is what we call the ‘lead actors’. Main lights
should be directed to the main actors. Key lights should always be directed to
the lead actors. This is the main light you are going to use in the video,
and the other two forms of light would act as
its back-up. This is the main lighting that you will use and the rest are just
back-ups. This will be used as the main source of light and the others
will just be supportive. Commonly, it is placed at a
45-degree angle and both top and side of the main subject.
Normally, it is positioned at a 45 degree angle and both top and side of the lead actor. It should be
placed at a 45 degree angle, concentrating the
lead actor.

– Fill Light: No ‘light’ is an island, and
since you want that dimension, the fill light is used for the filling in of the
unwanted shadow caused by the key
light. Fill light is required to hide the shadow
brought about by the main light.

– Back Light: Ever wondered why the subject always stands out in any
video? Why do subjects consistently shine in a video
presentation? Why are lead actors always shine brightest in a video? Blame it
on the backlight because it used to separate the main subject from the remainder of the background. Simply because the backlight is
doing so well in separating the main subject from the
background. Simply because backlight does things best.

The Fundamentals of Video Production: Let’s Go Back to the A, B, C’s.

From Kodak to digital cameras, from camera
strips and films to digitized and scanned images– that’s how fast-paced
our world is. From Kodak to ready to print cameras, everything has
transformed dramatically. From Kodak cameras to
luxury SLR cameras, advancement in technology has burnt the candle at both ends. With all the devices
and amazing things that a single click can create, not one can deny that we can reach
practically everything– even the stars. Within just
a matter of seconds, it feels like we may
do just anything. It feels everything is possible today. However, all the technological devices in the world
can not aid you in your seek for perfection if you are unaware
about how to make the most of the functions of your gadgets. But nothing can be aimed if you do
not know how to use your material. But things appear to be not
reachable if you can not maximize the use of your device.

In video production, it is a must that you
know all the details of your gadget. For you to be able
to use it in shooting videos, you must know the
particulars of your device. You can
not use your device properly if you know
its specifics. Now, the ones I’ll be discussing may not be new to you, but these are the
strategies that are often skipped and
disregarded by most video makers,
subsequently causing them immense
headache during post-production. Below are some
vital techniques that all video
makers should know. Check the following tips when shooting a video for you to
be prosperous.

MOVE.

Too much dependence on your
gadget may be just one of your major
issues when shooting a video. Relying much on
what your device can do is a big mistake when shooting a video. You shouldn’t
be relying just on the features of
your device and what it can give you. Rather than being highly dependent on your camera’s
zooming capabilities, you should always move around and try to acquire a closer view of your subject, and look for the best angles. It is you who should adapt to get a much
better view of your subject. Even when the zooming power
of your camera is superb, nothing beats
close recording of photos. There are major
distinctions when it comes to zoomed shots
and the ones that you shot closely. There are a number
of differences when it comes to zoomed pictures
and those that you shot very closely. Closely shot pictures
are way better than zoomed items.

Furthermore, if you’re aiming at getting the best sound quality, the
microphone ought to be nearer the sound source. Also,
if you intend to get a good video, the mic has to be near the
source. Clear audio can only be heard if your mic is near the subject.
Everybody knows that the closer the microphone to the speaker is, the louder
and the more discernible the voice is. Everybody knows that the closer the mic to the source is, the better
the audio of the video becomes. It is just good sense that for you to acquire a good
audio quality, you have to be near the source.

It’s Automatic.

No success is automatic, and the sooner
you use this in your professional life, the better. Success does
not come easy, you have to work for it. Success is a hard earned thing. Despite the fact that your camera may have features
that always come handy including auto-exposure or auto-focus,
switching on these features will not be the best thing for you to
do during video production, unless your gadget already has a brain of its own
and it already knows what to focus on and what
not to. Even when your device has all the
innovative features, nothing beats
the radiance of the human mind. Gadgets with
advanced elements would not matter if the user
does not have enough knowledge and skills in the field of photography and
videography.

Through manually
manipulating your lens and your gadget, you
‘d get so much more in return. By looking
into and adjusting your gadget
manually, you will surely get better results. Doing things
manually will help you boost more your personal skills and get better outcomes later on. Not only will you be able to focus
on what can best show the audience what the
shot wants to portray, you ‘d also be
able to control
the lighting of the shot. From focusing your subject to the proper lightning,
you can do it well with your new gadget manually.

Once is Not Enough.

Getting a
number of shots may or may not be a benefit during video
production. Taking many shots can be a
good or bad point. Getting multiple shots is can be a real
benefit if the purpose is right.
First of all, it can benefit your video more,
particularly since you ‘d be presented with
more options and you can compare the shots
and decide what the best is for your video from there. Some of
its advantage is that you’ll have a number of photos to
pick from. It excels in a sense that you
have many choices. However, there is no
need for you to shoot overly. But, this is not needed
constantly. But overshooting should not be a common
practice. Overthinking is one habit you should remove. Thinking too much should be
prevented. You should stop thinking
excessively.

Moreover, you need to
decide what type of shots you need for your video. More so,
you should know the kind of shots you need for you
video. Also, you have to identify first the type of
photos you really need for you video. While many chase films use motion shots, other videos use static ones. While most use
motion shots, others choose static ones. Static pictures
can also be used to develop videos. If your video
includes a lot of movement
like running, jumping or ahem, twerking, then it means that the motion shot is
best for you. If your video needs to have more
movements like jumping and running, you should get motion shots.

its specifics. Now, the ones I’ll be going
over may not be new to you, but these are the
methods that are often skipped and
neglected by most video makers,
subsequently causing them remarkable
headache during post-production. Listed here are some
crucial techniques that all video
makers should know. Check the following tips when shooting a video for you to
be productive.

MOVE.

Too much reliance on your
gadget may be just one of your major
dilemmas when shooting a video. Relying much on
what your device can do is a big mistake when shooting a video. You shouldn’t
be relying just on the features of
your device and what it can offer you. Rather than being highly dependent on your camera’s
zooming capabilities, you should always move around and try to
obtain a closer view of your subject, and look for the best angles. It is you who should adjust to get a much
better view of your subject. Even if the zooming power
of your camera is exceptional, nothing beats
close recording of photos. There are major
differences when it comes to zoomed shots
and the ones that you shot closely. There are a number
of differences when it comes to zoomed photos
and those that you shot closely. Closely shot pictures
are way better than zoomed items.

In
addition, if you’re aiming at getting the best sound quality, the
microphone needs to be nearer the sound source. Also,
if you wish to get a good video, the mic has to be near the
source. Clear audio can only be heard if your mic is near the subject.
Everybody knows that the closer the microphone to the speaker is, the louder
and the more clear the voice is. Everybody knows that the closer the mic to the source is, the better
the audio of the video becomes. It is just sound
judgment that for you to get a good
audio quality, you have to be near the source.

It’s Automatic.

No success is automatic, and the sooner
you use this in your professional life, the better. Success does
not come easy, you have to work for it. Success is a hard earned thing. Although your camera may have features
that always come handy such as auto-exposure or auto-focus,
turning on these features will not be the best thing for you to
do during video production, unless your gadget already has a brain of its own
and it already knows what to emphasis on and what
not to. Even if your device has all the
state-of-the-art features, nothing beats
the sparkle of the human mind. Gadgets with
advanced elements would not matter if the user
does not have enough knowledge and skills in the field of photography and
videography.

Through manually
handling your lens and your gadget, you
‘d get so much more in return. By looking
into and correcting your gadget
manually, you will surely get better results. Doing things
personally will help you boost more your personal skills and get better end
results later on. Not only will you be able to focus
on what can best show the audience what the
shot intends to portray, you ‘d also be
able to adjust
the lighting of the shot. From focusing your subject to the proper lightning,
you can do it well with your new gadget manually.

Once is Not Enough.

Getting several shots may or may not be a perk during video
production. Taking multiple shots can be a
good or bad point. Getting multiple shots is can be a real
advantage if the objective is right.
Firstly, it can benefit your video more,
particularly since you ‘d be presented with
more options and you can compare the shots
and decide what the best is for your video from there. Among
its advantage is that you’ll have lots of photos to
select from. It is good in a sense that you
have many options. However, there is no
need for you to shoot overly. But, this is not needed
at all times. But overshooting should not be a common
practice. Overthinking is one habit you should eliminate. Thinking too much should be
stayed clear of. You should stop thinking
excessively.

Moreover, you should
decide what form of shots you need for your video. More so,
you should know the kind of shots you need for you
video. Also, you have to determine first the type of
photos you really need for you video. While the majority
of chase films use motion shots, other videos use static ones. While most use
motion shots, others prefer static ones. Static pictures
can also be used to develop videos. If your video
consists of a great deal of movement
like running, jumping or ahem, twerking, then it means that the motion shot is
best for you. If your video needs to have more
movements like jumping and running, you should get motion shots.

The 3 Tips to Perfection: This is Just what Every Video Manufacturer Must Know!

If you are an admirer of MTV, you ‘d surely understand why
Justin Timberlake’s music video for “mirrors” won the heart of the
judges and became the VMA’s video of the year. If you’ve been
viewing MT V over recent weeks or months,
you would know why JT won the VMA’s video of the year award.
Those who are updated with what’s happening to MTV over the past months would
know why JT has gotten the support and
love of the judges and people and bagged the video
of the year award. Not only is the song a hit, but the video itself spells
magnificence. Besides the song itself, the
video was magnificent. Much more than the song itself, the
video was fantastic.

When it comes to video
production, there are very simple and basic rules that are often overlooked by
most video-makers. Usually than not, video makers
ignore the essentials of video making. In most cases, video makers are abandoning the fundamentals in video making. Now, there are only
two directions your video can head to– one is the hard way down, and the other
is triumph. With the tight competition these
days, you can only choose between two directions, up or down.
And because tons of good videographers are now
taking on one another, your odds of
winning or failing in this business are just the same, so you
better do good. While many may have all the skills needed for producing
quality video, you should consistently understand that it takes
more than just skill-sets to succeed. Even if you
have the skills, other factors still play a major role in
determining one’s success. It is insufficient to just count on
skills; it should be more than that. It doesn’t matter
how good you are at the technicalities, it doesn’t solely make up a successful
video. Even if you’re perfect when it comes to
trivialities, some things should not just be
purely very subjective. Being perfect on technicalities
can not guarantee you success.

Think
Ahead

Just
when you thought everything and anything imaginable
has already be done, you ‘d prove yourself wrong once a new video hits the
charts and awes the audience for its distinct
concept. Just when you thought there is nothing more to
strengthen on, you’ll see a new video that looks
outstanding and more
unique. Just when you thought you could not do
any better as everything has already been used or presented, you’ll find a new
video that is all new and magnificent. The primary step in video production is planning and
conceptualizing– and this should never be overlooked. It is essential that you conceptualize new
ideas first before the actual shooting. The first thing you need to do is plan beforehand. The time and efforts you exert in planning will greatly
determine the outcome of your video. All your efforts will surely pay off.
Doing a good planning will help you achieve success.

This
initial stage is the perfect time for you to unleash
your creativity and think outside of the box. This first phase is the best time
for you to show off your creativity. In this step, you
can really play with your imagination and put together your best
thoughts. If you are just going to imitate other
concepts, then your video will not attract attention
and will just be like the rest. Copying others’ works will not make you
successful. Originality is the key to success. Also, apart
from the concept and the settings, the actors you hire
will either make or break your entire video, so if you want to ensure you ‘d have the best output, you must
set the bars high and look for actors who can
really act naturally. Aside from the overall concept, the actors that will
appear in your video should also be great. In addition to the quality of the story, images, and audio,
actors can also make or break your work.

Production
Perfection

When
it comes to production, your goal should be aimed at perfection. Always aim to
be the very best. With this kind of word, there is no room for
errors. Yes, it is
unimaginable to get everything right the first time, but
if you feel that something is really wrong, do not be reluctant to reshoot the scene. Though it is natural to
commit mistakes, especially if it is your first
time, you should repeat the shoot if it didn’t go perfectly well. Reshooting is
a must if the first try didn’t go perfectly well. Otherwise, you will have
lots of problems during editing. If not, you’ll spend numerous time editing the video. Or else,
you’ll end up spending more for editing. Aside from knowing your gadget and
how to operate it, you must also consider the lighting, the sound quality and
what and what not to focus. Aside from preparing high quality equipment, you should also know
what not to include and concentrate on your video.
Recognizing what to avoid when shooting a film
is also crucial.
In addition, you must also know the best ways to use your tripod. Tripod is an important
device accessory. Tripod is needed when shooting a video. If it isn’t
levelled, then, you would have to face major issues later
on. If it is not set at the right level, you’ll have problems in the
future. If it is not used correctly, everything will
be a mess.

Finally.

Editing
is the final stage of video production, and this part would be the most
difficult and sluggish if you did rule
out the best for your video during production. Editing is the final work in
video production and this could be very challenging.
Editing should just be easy if you have done the work well from the very
beginning. The first few seconds of your video will either draw your audience
away or into watching the clip, so you better learn the best ways
to catch your viewers’ interest at an early phase. The first
seconds of your video should be snappy or else,
viewers would simply become bored and would not continue. The
first few seconds of your video is very important because if it is not that
enticing the audience, nobody would kill time watching the
entire video. Also, never use fonts that are
meaningless. Make sure that your fonts and
background are readable. See to it that that the
visuals benefit the reader’s eyes. Instead, stay
with the classics– simple,
eye-catching and legible. Sometimes, you just have to
stick to what’s simple but appealing.
Sometimes, you just have to keep in mind that
simplicity is beauty.
