Sample text

Reducing the exposure of your shot by a stop makes the image half as bright. This is an important concept to remember as you learn to properly expose your footage. Lower-end cameras and smartphones typically only offer an automatic exposure mode. In this case, the camera will attempt to properly expose your footage for you. In some situations, auto-exposure will result in unwanted results. It is best to manually expose your footage to get the proper exposure for all of your shots. If available, use your camera in manual exposure mode.

To achieve a variety of shots, you must think creatively. Get low. Shooting from any height other than eye-level will present an€interesting perspective for the viewer. Most people do not crouch down or bring their eyes to table- or floor-level. These shots can produce interesting results. n Shoot from the hip. There is the popular image on TV and in the movies of camera operators holding cameras on their shoulders. While this is a common shooting posture, there is no rule that says you have to shoot only in this position.

They can also be used to draw the viewer’s eye to your primary subject. Shooting a building straight on (at a 90 degree angle) will result in a very flat image. Instead, position your camera at a smaller angle in relation to the building to create an image with greater perceived depth. By shooting flat objects on an angle, you can create lines that appear to head towards a vanishing point. Shooting a street from the side does not connote depth, but shooting it from a low angle down will create a greater sense and appearance of three dimensions.
