I remember back when I first started filming video. It was in high school, and it was in one of my video production classes. We thought back then we were so awesome at what we were doing… (hehe… if only younger Steve new what older Steve knew.) As I learned to be a better videographer, editor, and photographer I picked up a lot of very useful tips which have really come in handy when I started using video dSLRs.
Here are 3 of my easy tips, along with a couple of little extra tricks thrown in to help everyone become a better video shooter. I want to help all of you to separate the look of your professional video from the home video Uncle Bob sent from his latest trip across country. You know…the one with the one shot panning and zooming while driving in the car through Colorado?
