The Rudiments 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 busy
our world is. From Kodak to ready to print cameras, everything has
changed dramatically. From Kodak cameras to
high end SLR cameras, advancement in technology has gone too
far. With all the gadgets
and amazing things that a single click can create, nobody can deny that we can reach
nearly everything– even the stars. Within just
a matter of seconds, it seems like we can possibly do just anything. It feels like everything is possible today. However, all the technological devices in the world
can not aid you in your seek for perfection if you are clueless
about how to take full advantage of the functions of your gadgets. But nothing can be aspired if you do
not know how to use your material. But things seem to be inaccessible 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 ought to know the
specifications of your device. You can
not use your device correctly if you know
its specifics. Now, the ones I’ll be discussing may not be new to you, but these are the
approaches that are often skipped and
neglected by most video makers,
subsequently causing them immense
headache during post-production. Listed below are some
important techniques that all video
makers should know. Check the following tips when shooting a video for you to
be successful.

MOVE.

Too much dependence on your
gadget may be among 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 depending just on the features of
your device and what it can give you. As
opposed to 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 adapt to get a much
better view of your subject. Even if the zooming power
of your camera is excellent, nothing beats
close capturing of photos. There are major
distinctions when it comes to zoomed shots
and the ones that you shot closely. There are many differences when it comes to zoomed photos
and those that you shot closely. Closely shot pictures
are way better than zoomed items.

Additionally, if you’re aiming at getting the best sound quality, the
microphone should 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 clear the voice is. Every
person 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 obtain a good
audio quality, you have to be near the source.

It’s Automatic.

No success is automatic, and the sooner
you employ this in your professional life, the better. Success does
not come easy, you have to work for it. Success is a hard earned thing. Even
though 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
advanced features, nothing beats
the sparkle of the human mind. Gadgets with
advanced functions would not matter if the user
does not have enough knowledge and skills in the field of photography and
videography.

Through manually
regulating 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
manually will help you improve more your personal skills and get better outcomes in the future. Not only will you be able to focus
on what can best show the audience what the
shot wishes to portray, you ‘d also have the capacity to manipulate
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 numerous shots may or may not be an advantage during video
production. Taking multiple shots can be a
good or bad point. Getting multiple shots is can be a real
advantage if the purpose is right.
Firstly, it can benefit your video more,
specifically since you ‘d be presented with
more selections 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 a number of photos to
choose from. It is good in a sense that you
have many selections. However, there is no
need for you to shoot too much. But, this is not needed
constantly. But overshooting should not be a common
practice. Overthinking is one habit you must eliminate. Thinking too much should be
prevented. You should stop thinking
excessively.

Moreover, you have to
decide what form of shots you need for your video. More so,
you must know the kind of shots you need for you
video. Also, you have to figure out 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 choose static ones. Static pictures
can also be used to create videos. If your video
includes 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.
