Filming

When filming with digital video, the three important things to be careful of are:

  1. Lighting
  2. Shot composition
  3. Camera movement

Lighting

Firstly you must have enough light. If your scene is dark the resulting video picture will be grainy and poor quality.

Secondly your subject should be lit as evenly as possible.

The reflected light is much more even than shining the light directly at the subject. One or more of your matches are incorrect. Try again. Your answer has been saved.
