    • Sin Number I Fire-Hosing
    • The resulting footage is bad because nothing is on the screen long enough to see it well.
    • Slow down! “ Frame” your shots Use a Tri-Pod
    • Sin Number II Snap-Shooting
    • Not having enough LEADING footage or BOOKEND footage can cause snap-shooting as well.
    • Sin III Head-Hunting
    • Head-Hunting is the practice of framing subjects with their eyes in the center of the shot.
    • The picture on the left has the eyes in the center of the picture and the one on the right puts his eyes about a third of the way down from the top, which one do you think looks better?
    • Notice that Will’s eyes are about 1/3 from the top? iRobot copyright 2004 20th Century Fox
    • See how each person in this shoot has their own 1/3 of the frame? iRobot copyright 2004 20th Century Fox
    • Sin IV Backlighting
    • This Picture looks a little washed out because of the windows in the back are a light source and mess with the exposure.
    • In this picture the foreground is too dark because of the light coming through the windows in the back.
    • About lighting
    •  
    • Sin V Motor Zooming
    • Sin VI Up-Standing
    • No, Will Smith isn’t really that tall, the cinematographer is shooting from a low angle. iRobot copyright 2004 20th Century Fox
    • Sin VII Jogging
    • Use a tripod with wheels or be very mindful of how you are walking.
    •  
    • Steadycam
      • Steadycams have springs and counter-weights, allowing the camera operator to walk without making the camera jump up and down with each step he takes.
