Little Things to Remember while Doing a Video

For all people who like to see some curated examples about tips of how to take a video. Here are some snippets to look at, study and reflect on them. After, try to do something similar while taking a video. They are not in order. Some don’t even have any explanation. But if you take my class you will remember. This are the first notes, and if needed I will clarify the idea behind these shares. Have fun!

zoom in or out in a steady way

Try not to walk with the camera unless you have the equipment to stabilize the action.

What  themes for our videos are we going to experiment with?
