Know The Things You Need to Make a Professional Video
There are several video equipment in the past that were bulky are needed in order to produce a video, but today, aside from being able to make a video through our cell phones we can make it better with some guidelines.
Here are some of video shooting tips that you need and will make you produce great videos.
What you will need first is something that will make your equipment steady and stable. Considering you are using a cell phone to make your video, the two stability devices that will stabilize what you are doing are a tripod or a glide cam.
You can make use of a tripod with a griptight mount if your plan is to shoot in studio conditions or stationary conditions, and this setup will only cost you around $50 for a good tripod. But if you plan to have a moving video with your cell phone, it is advisable to get a glide can that is weighted and balanced, which after practice even if you are running with it, you will get a stable and smooth footage. Also, you would need a glide cam if your footage is from a moving vehicle or following people surrounded with the environment. A glide cam costing around $200 or more, will give you excellent shots.
There are cell phones that have bad microphones and are not fit for recording conversations for a video production, thus you need a real microphone for this purpose. Some microphones are expensive, but there are other brands that are affordable and still can create great recordings.
When you record video in your cell phone, you would need to store the sound and thus another device is needed like another cell phone or a recording device, plus a software to edit the sound later.
Testing your sound before shooting is recommended, and you can choose from the many sound apps available that will aid you in recording professional sound.
The use of light is your another pointer in video shooting, and you have the natural light which is free, or you opt for additional gadget to spend. Note that learning how to maximize natural light for photo and video production is like your first knowledge.
Our next advice when video shooting is to get your angle right, which is actually tough unless you have a reflective surface to prevent deep shadows, or if not, then you need to frame your subject in such a way that their faces are looking directly at the sun.
