What if you could make professional grade video the first time you picked up a camera? Videomaker's new free report "8 Tips for a Stellar First Video" will show you how to become a better videographer on your first shoot. Maybe you've wanted to make video for a while; maybe you just caught the video bug recently. Either way, something's holding you back maybe you're worried that any video you make will look amateurish next to those made by long-time video enthusiasts.
This is great information. About to shoot a lot of therapy dogs for a local hospital, so this comes at a really great time. And now I know to shoot wide shots first...and switch up angles for editing. Plus, I now know to let the animals do their thing and change my "initial" scripting as necessary.

Check out this super sexy post on HDSLR workflow. This is not your
average digital film workflow, this is the Epicmealtime of video
On my blog site, there's alot of articles and websites that I have recommended to help us all in regards with pre-production, production and post production. I'm new and i'm trying to create a community within my blogsite so that we all can learn from each other and compare opinions. My only dream is that someone will push us towards a newer era in film/video creativity. Let's start now.
Anyone with me?
I have shot our first inhouse corporate video and the faces are way overexposed. There is not enough detail in the image to color correct it properly, plus with the amount of videos we need to produce in such a short period of time, I'd like to minimize the amount of color correction we have to do in post. So, how should I be lighting the subjects to avoid overexposed faces? I have 4 lights, and can put up to a max of 500 watt bulbs on two of them, and a max of 150 watts on the other 2.
It's been a while since I've put anything up so here's a vid from Still Motion with some good intermediate tips on how to make adjustments for shooting with a DSLR outside in bright sun. Now, the lessons talked about also apply to dedicated video cameras as well concerning apeture, shutterspeed and Neutral Density Filters as well.

There is no doubt that a tripod lends itself to steady camera shots, as well as smooth pans and tilts. However, when you're shooting a run and gun documentary, a tripod can become too cumbersome to lug around. Sometimes, a tripod isn't needed when attempting a more stylistic handheld approach. Either way, without a tripod, your camera work is more likely to suffer from the shakes. To reduce the amount of excessive movement in your video try practicing the following handheld camera techniques. - Keep your elbows bent and tucked near your body.
