A&E | Hold The Camera Still and Focus

I love recording showcases. I angle and zoom in and out on a performance to show a great experience. I’ve practiced and believe I have a good eye too. Plus I’ve been told I do a good job.

If you enjoy recording a show or event…you can learn to give the best experience from your recording or picture.

Hold the camera steady and focused on who or what is the focal point is. The recording doesn’t have to be long but make sure it’s clear and not moving all over the place or shaking.

Cellphones are easy to use in taking pictures and videos. The biggest part is to find a comfortable process to hold the phone steady in your hands or using a device.

When a video is bouncing all over its hard for the person watching to get a good impression of what is taking place.

When taking videos and pictures, honor the subject by placing them in the best light….think about your angle and surroundings.

If it’s a showcase, try to show the performance and angle to not show an empty or sparsely attended event by getting a close up. If the venue has a nice crowd show that. People like to see a great performance and a selling point is if you show the crowd/audience if that’s possible.

I would imagine if you take pictures and or videos you want to do it well.

Now is you are are going LIVE on Social Media, my suggestion is:

1) indicate who you are going LIVE on

2) let people know where you going LIVE at

3) as I listed above, hold your camera/cellphone still and focus accordingly.

Never assume that people know where you are and what you are recording, so you want to intrigue them to pay attention and possibly come out in the future.

In my opinion, you don’t have to be a professional and even have to go to the extent of focus in and out…but care enough to focus and hold steady.

It’s fun to take pictures and videos and when it’s done well, it can be addicting. 😁
