  • 4. Avoid constant zooming and panning.
    If you must zoom, consider walking closer.
    If you must pan, move slower than your instincts tell you.
    Avoid shaky-cam.
    Unless that’s the look you’re going for, invest in a tripod.
    Watch the headroom.
    Depending on your audiences’ viewing screen, buffers on the edges can be a catastrophe.
    Video Shooting Tips

  • 5. Think about shooting interview style.
    Sometimes you will look silly looking directly into the camera. Imagine someone interviewing you.
    Check the lighting.
    If you’re shooting outside, notice what the sun is doing to your shot.
    If you’re shooting inside, be careful of the shadows.
    Good lighting can sometimes make lame cameras look good.
    Shoot for the edit.
    Don’t worry if you get off topic. Sometimes the best content comes from carry-on conversations.

  • 6. Get close to your subject.
    No nose hairs please but make sure you don’t have tons of dead space surrounding the subject.
    The tighter your shot, the higher the perceived video quality.
    Check your backgrounds.
    Avoid busy or moving backgrounds when possible.
    Don’t let the plant behind you look like it is your 1960’s bouffant hairdo.
