Sounds like you’re picking up on ideas Evan. As far as your viewfinder goes, try to think of it as a “window” rather than a “painting”. That is, you look AT paintings, and THROUGH windows. Your viewfinder will show you what’s going on, but at the same time, you need to see beyond that, to ensure that your talent is doing what they’re supposed to, and you’re getting the audio and video you need. If you’re also mastering the audio while you’re recording, wear headphones. They do help.
Keep on keepin’ on. You’ll get the hang of it.
