FILMMAKING: 8 TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR SHOT

Learn how you can improve your filmmaking skills by using these 8 tips. There are many techniques that filmmakers use to produce beautiful images. In this video, we breakdown 8 tips to create the perfect shot.

Producing video can be a tough task. There is a lot you must think about when you are shooting. Let this video be a guide to help you master your technique. First, understand the importance of depth and identity your placement of the person on camera. Then determine which lens is going to serve your story the most. Going too compressed (like 100mm) can limit your background dramatically. However, going too wide can put too much unneeded space in your shot. With filmmaking, a lot of professionals say that lighting is what separates the amateurs from the pros. Don’t be intimidated by lighting. It’s not the only thing that will improve your shot, but it does go a long way. Be sure to also look at your white balance and how you are crating color contrast within your shot. Finally, understand that location and wardrobe is going to have a huge impact on what you are shooting as well. If you have a poor location, it will be tougher to make the shot nice.

We hope you find our 8 tips to improve your shot helpful. Always be filmmaking!
