[ Shoot­ing O ut­side ]


Use your cam­era’s auto white bal­ance when mov­ing around as it helps with changes in light.

Use a cam­era cage or grip when mov­ing around to help mit­i­gate cam­era shake and keep your footage level.

Make use of a cam­era-mounted light if the avail­able nat­u­ral light is low, but try to avoid harsh light­ing ef­fects.

Keep your cam­era at the cor­rect level for the kind of footage you’re shoot­ing – of­ten eye level.

Use zany an­gles un­less you have a good rea­son. Shaky, fly­ing cam­era footage makes au­di­ences dizzy.

Shoot in low light un­less your cam­era is set up to deal with it. Low light makes aut­o­fo­cus much harder for a cam­era.
