Creating Videos


Creating Videos

Some may want to make videos.

What should you do?

Do you have friends that could help?

Making a video calls for some expertise.

A lot of planning has to fall into place.


Whether you’re using a Sony, Canon, or Panasonic camera

There are some considerations when doing videos

Most of these video cameras have zoom lens

So you could shoot Close up. Medium or Wide angle shots

Practice zooming in and out to determine your best shot.


Another consideration is the lighting.

Not having good lighting could make or break your video

A good rule of thought is to have a key light,

Side light and a back light

You could use a light meter to measure

The light falling on your subject to have the best effect


The setting and the costumes are important.

Where do you intent to shoot your scene?

Is it in a home where there’s a living room?

Or, is it outside against a natural background of trees?

Wherever you decide make sure the scene

Isn’t cluttered with a great deal of distractions


Have your talent wear appropriate clothing

Light colors don’t photograph well in bright light.

Black clothing isn’t the best for dark African Americans.

And checkered clothing will appear as though their holes in their design.


“Omniscient Creator, help amateur videographers make the best use of their environment.  Let them be able to utilize the techniques of videography intelligently.”
